    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.

                    Hugs to you, Betty, for your zany posts that always bring a smile, and to you, Scott, who are usually on the giving end of things. And to everyone else who makes this forum the special place that gives so much, and refuses to give up. 🤗

                    I did touch therapy since it helps my sister in law so much. I saw it, I touched it and the money flew out of my bank courtesy of Drs. JC Penney and New Balance. Back to the saw tomorrow. I haven’t touched it in a week. And the beat goes on.
