Very nice! What kind of wood is that?Similar to TNT I got a new knife, my first Pukko-style. With any new knife I get for use in the woods I like to make something with it, a “christening” of sorts, as well as to test the function. Just last night I finished most of the major shaping. My original idea was to carve or burn fish features in it - scales fins eyes etc - but I’ll pencil them on first to see if the design will work. It’s a new coffee scoop to replace a plastic one. I wanted to make a kuska but the wood split and I had to work around it.

It’s hardwood so its quite a chore to carve.
Haha no! It was starting a chainsaw related!!! The damn 056 super I’m trying to get a piston for! I pulled the rope and I got a sharp shooting pain in my arm. Turns out it’s tennis elbow!Perfection! Love the light stripe down the center.
Was the injury wood-carving related?
