Chip Carving Video

This video covers a few chip carving basics for beginners. To learn more, I highly recommend Wayne Barton's book, The Complete Guide to Chip Carving.*

I'm not sure if I made it clear enough in the video, but the primary knife is the one that should NOT have any bevels. You SHOULD have bevels on the stab knife, however. Do not remove those.

*I do not benefit from the sale of Wayne's book. He wouldn't even know that I'm recommending it.
A few people asked where I bought my knives and stones--I bought them from Wayne Barton (available on his website).
