    Re: Cypress???

    Hi Ho,
    I havn't found to bad on blades, i just strop a bit more.
    When a carving is first done it has a color like dark butter then ages to a nice golden brown tone. The grain is not very visible.

    Thanks mactruck, I think I'll try to get some, I really like carving the knees.

    Dave, the knees haven't hurt my knives or chisels a bit. They actually like the knees so much, they strop themselves when I turn out the lights

    Cypress???

    I bought a half dozen cypress knees on Ebay awhile back, I think they cost roughly $5 each and they were all peeled. Once I put a knife to the first one, I fell in love! Those knees where the lightest, nicest carving wood I have tried (mostly I carve hard wood I pickup back in the woods or the yard).

    My big question: How is bald cypress for carving? The knees are great, but I don't believe I have read anyplace where anyone has mentioned carving cypress itself.

    Anyone???????
