Long time walker, first time carver. I have a few walking sticks, long ones for really uneven terrain and shorter ones for level terrain. Always wanted to learn carving...I can wittle, so I guess I got a start in my learning process. Happy walking to all!

Thank you Sean. Sticks are a personnel thing, I get attached to them also. Think about it, they are an extension of your body.

Hi, and welcome. As far as carving goes, keep your edges sharp, and consider getting a carving glove of finger protection. Lots of good stick wood is harder than often used by carvers, and its easy to push too hard.

You are oh, so right about stick wood,(at least the woods I choose), vs. carving wood, where I see a lot of basswood. The carving glove is a great idea, I do wear gloves, (not always though), to cut down on blisters. developing. Thank you for the reminder gdenby, I should wear protection ALL the time.
