Beginner Knife Tip
While whittlin with my coffee at the local in town diner I forgot a really important knife rule. No! no blood, at least not from me. Had the Santa been real, he'd have lost blood along with most of his nose. You should strive to know your knife so well that you will always: A. Know exactly where the knife tip is when carving. B. Know exactly how much pressure to use when making any cut. C. Never use more pressure than necessary. Now how do you do this, you might ask! PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. and I might add, don't keep switchin knives. Stay with one. At least until you feel you have mastered it.
