Kelly's Carving Knife (or one of them anyway)
Here's one of my carving knives. I've decided that, until I get better
and can find me a good knife, that I'd just use what I have.
I really like the Xacto knife set I have. The blades are extremely sharp, they are available in a lot of places, and when they get dull
you just throw them away and put in a new one. No time spent sharpening. I have a #6 aluminum handle which I like but this #2 handle
seemed just a bit small at times. Rather than not using it, I built a handle for it. It's made of pine. I drilled a hole lengthwise in
a size that fit my hand, sanded it down and drilled a screw hold through both the wooden handle and the aluminum handle on the Xacto
knife. Slip the Xacto into the pine handle, secure with a screw and nut and there you go. The pictures below show you.
