      This is a Lichtenberg burner I built out of an old microwave transformer. Will use it mostly for background work, still experimenting (carefully). I will be using in conjunction with my wood carving. The top of the box is an example of the type of burns it does.

        I won this from a raffle at a carving show. I have no idea what it is used for? What do you do with this? It is huge!

          Near as I can tell, "Sloyd" was a wood working curriculum for education in Europe and the UK.
          There were a few unique tools and the "Sloyd" knife profile was one of them.
          Personally, I'd like to use that in the kitchen for all sorts of food prep.

            Kind of what I was thinking, a camp knife

              Well, I don't camp so may play around with it to possibly hog off wood. It will probably wind up in my kitchen too.

                Don't have a good picture, however, I just purchased the Bishop Ocular Tool, made by Mike Shipley at OCC Tools. It is a 7/16" X 64 Soft V tool. Used to make the eye socket in caricatures, and for relieving wood next to the nose.

                  Sammy, you're on the right track. A sloyd knife is generally used for rough carving work. I have three sloyds, bought when I first dabbled in carving years ago...they get very little use, as I find them just too clumsy in shape and thickness to be useful. I hope yours proves better suited to your style of carving. It does look quite a bit sleeker than mine, and I do like Flexcuts.

                    My newest tool is a KN27 Flexcut detail knife. This is the official description:

                    The Mini-Detail Knife has a straight blade. It is made from ultra-thin material to not disturb adjacent wood for very delicate cuts. The smaller handle is faceted with multiple control points to allow it to be held in a variety of comfortable positions.

                    Blade Bevel Length: 3/4"

                    I have fallen in love with this little beauty! It makes very delicate cuts and just glides through the wood without effort. Hardly an hour goes by that I don't use it.

                        My new tool is a Tom Ellis carving knife . Its a great looking knife & it cuts as good as it looks . Couldn't be any happier, Tom's handles are very comfortable too. I liked it so much I ordered two more . He sales them on ebay and sometimes offers a small detail knife as well.

                          Thanks. Actually, this thing looks totally useless for the type of carving in the round I do. And yes, it is huge and bulky. (It was not my lst choice for the raffle, but it was what was left.) To be perfectly honest, it looks like a serious injury just waiting to happen (at least in my hands).

                            Deleon, I saw some folks raving about this very sharpener on a fb woodcarvers forum. I have no personal experience with one. Three of them were really singing its praises though. There were no negative comments from the ones who own it.

                              tbox61, I also own that very tool. I love it. It took a tiny bit to adjust to the soft curve, but wow, does it ever do a beautiful job!
