  • Anybody use the Rich Notto knives?

    Captain brought up a pointthat has me scratching my head. I was about to venture out of my comfort zone, and get one because they look pretty high quality, but they dont have that flat cutting edge. Is the the knife going to slip more? Or will it help slice better because of the skew? I have been using the same kind of knife since I started.

    I find that the curved or skewed edge does cut better, especially in hard woods. However, the curved blades aren't worth a hoot to make a stop cut. I have only 1 true skew blade and just don't care for it much. Don't really know why.

      I have been chip carving for about 5 years and have always used a Rich Notto knife. I started with his Merchon M-l which has a small blade and now have his regular Merchon. The blades are flat, and only require honing as you carve. I think he really has good quality knives and he is a nice guy to talk to also. Very helpful with carving or sharpening questions. I have not used his curved knives as they don't seem to be the type for the kind of carving I do.

        I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

        I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

        But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

        +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

        It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
