Florida Day 5

I have just experienced the best of all things when whittling/carving.  The knife that I just used is a Mike Shipley, the Basswood came from Heinecke, the sun is out in full warmth, and a good stiff breeze blows off the Gulf.
Now here's what's so good.  The knife was ground flat, and stroped to a super edge.  The Basswood was pure white, with just the perfect amount of moisture.  These two combined to make for effortless clean cuts; without any chipping.  The sun provided great vision and good warmth.  The breeze kept the chips blowing off the deck.

It just doesn't get any better then this......
