Creation Carvings· Registered
I started carving with knives about 5 years ago and took to it quite naturally. I then started carving walking sticks and had the same problem, hard wood is better for sticks but not better on knives. I would suggest keeping the knives for other carvings and use power tools for walking sticks. I know it is not as romantic but it saves a lot of time sharpening and sharpening and sharpening while carving an ozark mountain hickory.
