A Little Whittling

I got an impromptu whittling lesson from one of our archers today.  Tom Mahr is 83 and still makes his own bows, knives and equipment.  He hikes over hill and dale shooting arrows.

I told him I was trying to carve roosters from branches. He knew exactly what I meant.  So he showed me some basic whittling techniques. Then he went to his truck and brought back a whittling knife.  It was made in Sweden.  Then he just gives me the knife.  Wow. So now I have no excuse to not learn how to whittle.
