The mini was easy to use I'm having trouble with the reverse #1. Man, I can't use either one! Some sort of moron effect seems to take over when either one is in my hand. I'm almost scared to try the K, even though it sounds like just what I need.

This gallery now contains one new pic of a K gouge as well as pics of reversed and miniaturized gouges and a 3U: http://www.atlasquest.com/gallery/viewalbum.html?gAlbumId=3810 I really wish it were possible to rearrange the photos into a deliberate p...

Perhaps some of the experienced reversed gouge carvers can chime in here, but I think there's probably a fundamental difference in style that determines whether a reversed will work for you or not. When using a regular V gouge, there are two methods t...

That's probably a pretty darn good assessment! I was pretty sure it was in the carving style but I couldn't explain it. I know I angle my gouge every which way. And for long wide cuts I pick up a normal #1. The reverse is for detail work. I've had...

I really wish it were possible to rearrange the photos into a deliberate presentation order rather than just chronologically or alphabetically. Weellll, if you name your photos "A. reversed" (or whatever you want first), then "B. mini" (or whatever you...

Did you not see that Forayach said that he would thumb wrestle with me & then he would give me a NICE carving lesson! neener, neener, neener! Some folks are just nice. I can't say I'll run when you show up cause I'm still not fast enough. You'd overt...

I was hoping for the lesson whether I won or lost. Hoping the winner would feel sorry for the loser, if that is the way the thumb lands! ; )

I'm almost scared to try the K, even though it sounds like just what I need. Oh be brave & give it a whirl! Then just send it off to Foraych if you can't get it to work! (or me!)

Where did you write about me pocketing YOUR reverse? Yes, I did seem to have left that part out, didn't I? I guess that would be a possibility IF I brought it with me. Thankfully, it will be safely elsewhere...

Those "Calvin Ball" rules really are great - maybe you can teach me those while I give a carving exhibition to bluebirdlover (and tigs sneaks your reverses from your stash). :)

When others view the gallery, would they see the photos in alphabetical order or in whatever their own default order is?

So where can we get the 2U and/or 3U? They are not listed on Stampeaz. They look great for cutting back on the mountain-topping part of carving. Even with the clear photos, I'm not sure which size is best. We have a #5 that looks to be the size of...

Oh duh I read the full description for the U3. It *is* smaller than our #5, right? Great!!! Now to figure out how to get them.

Yeah, Webfoot hasn't opted to start carrying the 2U or 3U. Jump on her case! No, the 3U is about half the size of a normal #5. The 2U is probably less than half the size of a 3U!
