    He added a little info on the carving knife that he used, if thinking about making one, there is enough info to get you in trouble.

    It would be nice to know about the wood - wavy maple? walnut?
    I am pretty sure it is maple, after wards they dye it using aqua fortis , a ferric acid.

    If anyone wants to see more of the tutorials, go to the tutorial section of the forum, there are several on woodcarving.

    That fellow has got the talent of the old gunsmiths of Pennsylvania. Nice to see such fine work in this day of synthetic stocks and in-line ignitions .
