I am quite an accomplished whittler, but my skill has nothing to do with wood  

I got Steve a whittling book for Christmas and have been rewarded with a knife for my birthday. It's not the finished article because it needs 'tarting up'.

What worries me is that I find the pointy end very tactile, which is all well and good until he sharpens it...

I have a list from his book BUT his fishing tackle has been rummaged out of the shed and his attention has turned to tying flies
