One of the carvers in the local club only uses a very sharp jackknife for carving. The knife one of us
would choose, may not even be one that would fit your hand. You are going to have to try a few to
find one that will work for you.

While it doesn’t show, I’m pretty sure I managed to hit the “like” button, Bluepine.

Ramelson is the only name I know. While their tools are not bad my experience has been they did not have a ready to work edge. I would suggest if you are just planing to have one knife that you consider One known for being a good carving knife, there are really great knives out there for under $35. Helvie, Drake, Pfeil, and others.
Check out Woodcraft ,Chippingaway, smokymountain woodcarvers, Woodcarvers supply are a few good suppliers.
