Nicely laid out and explained. Loads of information but delivered in a style that means the stuff you need is easy to pick out.
He just goes to show that when carving and whittling a small simple knife is all you need. Plus the wood of course.
Anyway the book is great and gives some lovely ideas on how to, what to, and what to look for...
You don't need all the whittling kit that Amazon will tell you need. A good blade. I use my Mora knife and a Spoon knife (hook knife) and works fine for most things.
Spoons are great for making around the camp fire. Worth getting a small folding hand saw.
Book came the next day. It is what it is really a book on whittling.
Certainly a choice for a little light reading, which opens up options
