This is a butter knife I carved for a friend’s birthday gift. It is carved from apple wood and is approximately 15cm long.

Thanks all for the feedback….
Dan, thanks for the link to LJ (from DeviantArt). Lot of fabulous work on this site! Love it! I generally only use a small carving knife on all these projects and then some sanding. If I recall correctly, this butterknife was about a 4 hour project. One day, I hope I can get a bandsaw to speed up my time by ‘blocking out’ the forms. I hope to be doing some ceramic tiles for my new bathroom in the near future and your work is most inspiring. Big contrast on your personal aesthetics and those of Pratt & Whitney. :-)

Hi Rick, can you recommend a basic carving tool rundown for those moving beyond the buckknife? I’d like to know the basic tools that I might need to do the majority of work on average sized projects.
