Choking Up On Your Knife

As I was doing some detail carving, I noticed that I was choking up on the knife. That is, I was holding the knife and blade with only the tip showing, and "working". I got to thinking that this is just what the baseball player does, when he wants to generate less power, and have greater control. This is exactly what I want when carving "small". You just have to be careful not to cut yourself.
