New carving knife.

I tried out my new axe handle yesterday and I'm very pleased with the result, I have had to make a few changes here and there to the handle shape, just little cuts to get rid of hot spots and now it feels very comfortable to use.

I was given a Polar whittler blade a while ago by a friend and I quite liked the look of it for a carving knife, I decided as I had some Ash left over that I would make a handle for it.

Not a massive project for the axe but a good start. The knife feels very good and it will make a great knife to add to my tool roll, I have a nice piece of silver Maple waiting to have a spoon made from it so I will give them both a good trial.
