    Mostly an 'Oldtimer' medium stockman with modified blades. Also use a model 303 Buck, also with modified blades. Thirdly a swiss army knife (with modified blades of course).

        I carry a warren carving travel set with me. It's about the size of a paper back book has 4 gouges, a v-tool, and 4 blades. all in a hard case.
        As for pocket knives i use mine as tools but i do have a couple of Case knives but their not good for carving, too big.

            Kenny, you can still pick those whittlers up for around 24 bucks! One item in the whole Scout catalog that's not over priced.

              I use an old Imperial Stockman (carbon steel) and a newer Imperial Stockman (stainless steel). I also have a new Bear 5 blade that works great but is a bit pricey to carry in my pocket with my change, keys, etc.

              I have a large collection of pocketknives and have used most of them at one time or another for whittling. Barlows, Bokers, Case, Schrade, Camillus, you name it I've probably got it.

              I prefer a three blade medium Stockman style knife for in the field carving and whittling. Schrade/Uncle Henry/Old Timer/Imperial being my favorite brand.

                I have used many pocket knives over the years, and found as long as you keep it sharp by not using it for cutting 'other things' they all worked pretty good. I recently bought a Kershaw 4380 and had Rick modify it a little and really like it. It has locking blades which add to to safety. Good choice if you have an extra fifty bucks you need to part with.

                  Thanks ALA. Since I am not in Scouts anymore, , I am not around those Cats. However, I am going to Wichita tomorrow to get some bark for the little bride, well she is going to pick it out and will stop at the Scouts store when there.

                    I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                    John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                    Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                    I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                    This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                    I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                    Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                    How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
