Try Stick

While i was out and about yesterday i collected a nice piece of Hazel in order that i could carve a Try Stick with the knife that Jontok in Norway sent me.

Whenever i get a new knife, be it a custom blade or a mass produced blade like a Mora, i like to take the time to carve a Try Stick, as i have found that carving one of these, soon shows any flaws and weaknesses in the design of the blade and handle and likewise, also shows the strengths of a blade.

I'm pleased to say that the Jontok knife performed admirably and in next to no time a Try Stick was born.
