    April seems to be a month of spring, fools and bunnies. What does all this have in common?

    Nothing.

    Carving contest time. Show your best woods carving skills next to an ESEE knife to win.

    You must have done the carving yourself.
    You must have an ESEE knife in the photo.

    I cannot wait to see the skill and expertise you all have!

    I am wretched at carving. The last time I tried to carve a spoon I ended up carving my finger instead. I'll try to attempt another spoon before end of month...

    Sadly this is the extent of my carving skills.;)

    Thanks! My carving skills don’t do it justice haha. Just a small branch of birch drift wood. It would be nice to stumble upon the tree it came from for a matching noggin.

    Its good work too! Dont sell youself short. The master has “failed” many more times than the student. That looks like a spoon and that means success.

    Well done gentlemen! Lots of awesome entries!
