Ivy for whittling?

Started by John Bamford. Last reply by John Bamford Apr 14, 2018. 10 Replies

Some years ago, around 20 at a guess, I carved a letter opener out of a piece of ivy. The blade was in the shape of a Javanese Kris, something like the one below in general shape.…Continue



                                         CLASSICS are carvings from an earlier time that have sentimental value in the carver’s collection. The Ear of Corn was carved around 1983 or 1984 from a Pine shelving board.  It measures 13 inches tall and 4 and 1/2 inches wide and finished naturally with brushed on Deft.  It was […]


Carving “LOU” the Cat was an exercise in carving outside the comfort zone. Woodcarving is a learn by doing process making every carving project a learning experience and a practice carving. Carving a project that is outside the carver’s comfort zone is especially a stretch in the learning process. The WOOD BEE CARVER is primarily […]

Schatt & Morgan


!!! .. Bet you did the happy dance .. !!!


I've a whopping 2 S&M .. my favorite being a humpback lockback whittler of their Premier series. I've a very nice leather purse for it. Still can't bring myself to carry or use it. Just .. one of those knives.
Congrats, JJ.

Boy, that is sweet, J.J.!

Those appear to be walnut scales topped-off with S&M's striking and unmistakeable Keystone shield...Beautiful, indeed! And a wharnie master, to boot! Yippy Skippy...Great score!

Congrats, my friend!

Picked up this beautiful Schatt & Morgan wharncliffe half whittler, at the Dalton show, this past weekend.

You are right JJ I collect a few burls that I find on trees, mostly Grey Alder around here. It isn't sensible because there tends to be so many faults inside them that Its no use planning on something just see what comes out ...if anything! 

I only really persevere with this knife cos I paid good money for it, if I lost it then it wouldn't be replaced.

Love the mushroom carving, John.

Sometimes it's the wood that determines the finished piece.

The only flexcut jack, that I own, is the whittling jack.  Bought it to review.

Comment by John Bamford on February 18, 2018 at 7:11

I have been meaning to buy an Oar whittler for quite some time now, I have had the Flexcut for some years and have never liked it.  As JJ say's they are ugly but to my mind, a far worse failing is that they are very uncomfortable in use. The other blades to the ones in use are always trying to make their way out of the frame and into my hand.

Having said I have been using it for a while now as I sometimes do a little whittling in my lunch break at work. I work on my own and inhabit an old van so no-one knows what I am up to.

No particular reason for whittling a couple of mushrooms with an oakleaf stuck to them as they emerge, just took my fancy. May get finished in another month or two of lunch breaks!
