Florida Day 6

A little warning for those whittlers/carvers who take long vacations, and plan to get in lots of whittlin and carvin.  Play close attention to your tools.  If you are like me, you don't travel with a power sharpening system.  I just pack lots of wood and my strop. This means that you had better strop often to maintain the edge on the tools.  This is especially true when whittlin with a knife.   I usually do strop often, but sometimes I get into the "zone" and forget.  Worse case scenario is having to reestablish the sharp cutting edge by hand.
