    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.

                    Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

                    Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                    I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                    Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                    That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
