      I tried to edit this link right after I posted it but could not get onto this board. I did finally manage to get it fixed so try it again. Personally, I think anyone can carve a wooden pencil. If this guy had any ambition, he would try carving mechanical pencils! LOL!

            Wildly amazing, really. Thanks for showing us. I wonder what makes a person decide spend so much time and creativity to carve pencils, of all things.

              Same thing that makes them carve toothpicks; yikes, what patience that takes. Just got back from the model engineering show in southgate, Mich. Theyu have some tiny steam engines, less that a quarter inch square that are fully functional. Same guys that carvwe pencils, I think, but what skill is needed!

                Heck, I've got the patience, I just wonder where they get their glasses, sure could use better ones when I'm doing detail work. I constantly find myself holding my work right up to my face and looking out underneath my glasses at it! :-/ Callynne

                  I have been cutting a lot of 1 1/2 hardwood for mini birdhouses and my go to blade in the Flying Dutchman UR-5 as I like the finish it gives.
                  For some real hard woods like cherry and hard maple I have had better luck with the FD polar bladed #5.

                  My preference would be Flying Dutchman #5, as it could handle it if you needed some tighter turns---and going to a #7 or #9 if doing a lot of straighter cuts. Plywood does dull blades a bit faster though, no matter the blade brand choice. The best blade is kinda a broad question---every brand works...

                  I totally agree with Dan (dgman). I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy. Some suppliers...

                  Wow, that is a loaded question! You will get a lot of opinions, but the best answer is the ones that work for you. My suggestion is to order or buy several types and sizes and brands, and use what works for you. I would suggest you not buy the generic blades you find in local hardware stores. The top...
