First try at carving for a while
« on: May 02, 2012, 03:28:42 PM »
Well, I tried my hand at carving last night.  Made sure the carving knife was good and sharp and that I had good light.  What I didn't have was a glove.  After an hour or so I wish I had that glove as I pulled that freshly sharpened knife out of my thumb.  I guess it will be a while before I get to try again. 

Any suggestions on a good glove?

Try one of these. I've used them while running draincleaning machines. Very durable.
