Spoon carving

About a Year and a half ago there was a spoon carving contest on the BCUSA forum, so I thought why not give it a shot. I used my Rat Cutlery RC-3 (which is now ESEE Knives ) to carve it from a Sycamore branch while I was milking at the farm.

I found that spoon carving  can be addicting for some reason or another (another is that I never figured out how to carve anything else) and you learn very quickly how a knife handles, and the RC-3 handled very well!

The bulk of my carving now is done with Mora's










My latest one is a made of Birch, carved with a BHK Boat Tail .













All of my work starts out pretty much as firewood or a branch cut and carved with no power equipment with no real design other than what the wood "wants" to do.

Some of my work.
