My Grandson (then just over 1) ordered my set from EvilBay. I was looking, he hit return, I was hovering over buy now. Thought I might as well :lmao::lmao::lmao:
Prefer my Flexcut Carvin' Jack though ;). Stays razor sharp and all contained in a folder ;) Price of £100 is a little dear though

I got mine off here secondhand and love it. :35:
Word of caution :nono: - I was advised to get a "wrong handed" one so you slice away from you instead of toward you. I use pull strokes more, so got a normal right handed one.
This doesn't read to good for them though, http://www.woodcarvingillustrated.com/forum/f38/flexcut-carvin-jack-1151/ , and axminsters don't appear to stock them anymore :yikes:

Just to let you know this thread is still live - currently having a first go at carving a woodspirit - in fact my first attempt at carving anything!!

Something I have never tried so far but having seen the tutorial I might have a go. I like to make hiking staffs and walking sticks however I have rather different approach to them than most you will find.
