Well yesterday I decided I would whittle a little heart ( girlfriend's idea lol ) out of a 1.5"x1.5" piece of douglas fur. I know that's not really whittling wood but it's all I had.
Anyway, I got the basic shape of the heart done, but it took literally all day. Was probably whittling for 12 hours straight... Used my Kershaw "Needs Work"
This morning my knife hand's forearm is ON FIRE. The whole side of it is just burnin' up. Very surprising as the grip on the knife was very comfortable the whole time. I'm wondering if maybe I shouldn't use that particular knife again, maybe it put my muscles in a strange way--ergonomics and all that. It's really odd though 'cause my hand never felt tired once holding the thing.
