Marty, thanks for putting together this video it is an interesting process. I wounder if the EZ Board material isn’t ‘harder’ on knife blades than say a hard wood might be? Do you notice any added sharpening/stropping required when carving in this material in order to maintain blades? Looking for to part 2. Thanks -

Hi Ron,
I’ve found when carving EZboard compared to basswood I tend to strop a bit more regularly. I’ll tell ya that you can really feel the difference in EZboard after stropping. I know it helps a lot in basswood but maybe you don’t feel the difference quite as much.
Look for part 2 in a couple of weeks!
