Use #40 for a Pocket Knife: Whittle a Stick

wood carving with a pocket knife

Being in Maine for the month of August presents ample time for a pocket knife enthusiast to explore his or her craft.  My daughters were playing outside with some small sticks and asked me to whittle them into knives.  That request was denied however I did shave the bark off of one, and carefully instructed both girls the proper way to whittle a stick with a pocket knife. The next day I started making a handle, although I haven’t gotten very far.
