Default The most versitsal machine in your shop

It just came to my mind when I was digging something with my exelent Swedish Mora/ Frost knife that the over advertised tool called router is far behind the Puukko-knife from the throne. I think it hasn't reached the lobby yet.
Before the year 1562 we Finn's ate with fingers and the Puukko-knife. Nobody spoked about router as we know it in the 1600th century. What happend in year 1562?
The Polish beauty Katarina Jagellonica married with Duke Juhana who lived in the Turku Castle. Juhana III was the King of Sweden 1568-92 and before that the Duke of Finland 1556-1563. Katarina Jagellonica was the sister of the King of Poland.
Katarina Jagellonica brought with her from the Kings court the fork.

I use my post Katarina Jagellonica Puukko-knife for many things and with many techniks. When carving I have 5-7 puukko all made by Frost
For carving I use only HSS blades. For sharpening I have a Tormek T-7
I have allso a Dianova lapstone Professional

Nice set, Esko. If I had to say which of my tools were my
most versatile, I'd have to say my Dremel, because of the
different uses I've put it through. Not as impressive as the
history behind that knife set of yours, but hey - my Dremel
(actually, my B & D Rotary Tool) is where I began my advent-
ure into the world of wood.

Excellent point, Esko (no pun intended...this time...oh Hell, might as well take it when you find it . I don't carve, at least not intentionally, but the tool I take for granted is my utility knife; I'd be lost without it. The other small non-power tool that I found indispensable doing renos was my little 8" Japanese cat's paw...

Some people here like the Frost knives also. Frost Laminated Steel Knives - Lee Valley Tools

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

It's a very good puukko. I have modified some of them to suite my needs in carving. Specially when I'm carving something that can be held in the other hand. With these modified knifes I carve the hemisferic part of the ( what's the name of the thing you take that ... soup with?)big spoon in 50minutes. I try to attache a pic so you all understand what I am trying to say. Before I had these knifes it took me two hours.

With this Kitchen utility it took longer Because it was a littlebit broken or kracked efore I started to carve it. The wood was so beautiful that I desided to use it anyhow. What do you think?

Hi Barb. Dremel or similar German Proxxon is a very capabel machine. I use it too in some special things like the 3D carving by hand. I'll post a new topic so you kan see by your self. It's a fotograf I copied on the wood by hand.
