  • PFEIL "Swiss Made" Brienz Carver's Knife

    I was recently in the Woodcraft store and recieved two different opinions from the sales guys, one good one average.
    I can't paste the link but I'm referring to Product Number: 123013. I thought this knife would be good for relief carving, and whittling because of it's versatility. The one thing I do respect about the sales people is they do give you an honest opinion regarding their product and type of carving you are doing.

    I ended up buying a Rick Butz detail knife. I just wanted to know if anyone owns this knife or has an opinion on it.

    Thanks Ken

      Thank you FX. It takes me a few attempts to determine if I like a particular knife.

        I got to spend some time talking with the gentleman from Quackwood Knives while I was at the ICC. He seemed interesting and was willing to make custom handles for knifes (With my long fingers, that's always a quetion for me.) Has anyone else heard about his knives? He's got a lot of different shapes.

          If you've got large hands like some of us out here, why don't you get a couple warren or murphy blades and make you own. That way you can make the handle exactly like you want it and it won't cost you a whole lot. Well, maybe could cost you a lot, because it could get addicting.

            Already doing that. I've made some out of files and actually got some 'german steel' from a guy I used to get wood from. He saves all his old de-barking blades from his sawmill and gives them out to people. I don't know what they're hardened to, but they are tough to put an edge on and stay sharp forever.

            I also made one out of a jigsaw blade. I use it almost like a pencil --but it doesn't hold an edge for long.

            I'm actually in the process of making a new handle for one of my knives right now. It's the first knife I got--another carver gave it to me when I expressed an interest in carving, but the handle was just too small.

            Enough rambling for now.
