Hand carved spoons, kolrosing and chip carving.



I've been experimenting with some new spoon carving designs.
A touch of chip carving alongside simple tattooing.

It's quite amazing what can be achieved by the simple application of the tip of your knife.

Plus a little dry ground coffee.

Once again, I used a compass to mark out my design.

Then painstakingly added the depressions with the tip of my MiniMac carving knife.

Some of the spoons here are left plain as the natural markings are quite enough.

 I've been using my most recent MaChris for quite some time now.
The MaChris bushcraft/carver Chris made for me in 14C28N  has proved to be almost as resiliant as the 52100 bearing steel that is used in our standard MaChris knife range.
There is not much between the two.
I like the idea of a rust proof bushcraft/carver, especially when one lives in a wet and damp environment like Dartmoor.
