 made one of them sawzall blade crooked ones too.. A really crappy one, at that. Need to try again. Hopefully do a better job. I'll post a pic sometime, if I think about it. I would like to have a decent one.
 I use a gouge mostly, to carve concave objects that are too hard to do with a knife point. Here is a pc of the gouge with a spoon I am working on:

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Here are some pics of my crappy crooked knife project. I will have to make another, since this was a first time, I will try to do a better job on the next one.

Thnx..
 :D
 Perhaps not having as many beers when doing it & now having learned/knowing a bit more after the first try, might help too, you would think, eh?
