today while on the coast i picked up a little piece of driftwood on the beach. i started whittling away at it and this was the results.  it’s a little whale.  he is a bit asymmetrical, but i think he turned out pretty good for a first attempt.

when i was a little kid i used to use my swiss army knife (naturally) to whittle away at sticks while on camping trips. i don’t think that i ever attempted to make anything out of the sticks… except for sharper sticks.

this week i graduated from the swiss army knife to the bad boy you see in the bottom photo.  it’s called the remix and i really like it.  many thanks to the folks at gerber legendary blades for sending me this knife.  i hope to make more stuff with it.
