Carving tools

I haven't done much lately due to work commitments ,
 but I have been playing with some little
carving knives and spoon carvers
This is the first attempt at a spoon carver , using an old piece of hedge cutter blade chisel ground and then bent around a piece of pipe
The handle is stinkwood

 This is my second go. The blade is hedge cutter blade again , but thinned down to 9 mm wide
the handle is panga panga with brass pins
The handle is finished with super glue and polished with autosol

 This is a little carving knife made from an off cut of 3mm 01 tool steel
the handle is yellow wood and panga panga finished with danish oil

 they should make a nice little set
