Kuksa...

This week I have been carving with the new MaChris No1.
I started with a couple of spoons and found the new knife to be just what I expected.
It's waste removal capabilities are second to none.
Armed with this knowledge I decided to make one of my trademark Kuksa...

 Cutting and shaping the end grain is quite hard work and usually takes a long time.
I was impressed from the start as the knife easily dealt with this job...

I also tried a little chip carving around the handle to try out the super fine working tip, and I must say it was a dream to use.
I knife finished this Kuksa leaving it with a beautiful multi faceted finish, dipped in Italian coffee the Kuksa took on a splendid dark tan. I applied two coats of pure Tung oil and followed this up with a light coating of wax. As you can see the Kuksa now has a beautiful lustre...

The apple crop is coming along nicely too...
