Bloody Start

February 12, 2016

Before starting, I settled on carving a face out of the log and traced a rough outline of some of the features as a loose guide. I began whittling with my old USAF survival knife and found it tough going, the blade not being suited for detail-oriented work. I soon switched over to a blade on my Leatherman tool which was much more capable.

I'd already created a rough outlining of the eyes and nose when, all of a sudden, the Leatherman blade snapped in two and caught my finger in the process. Bleeding a little--luckily only a small cut--some of the blood made it onto the piece. It seemed like a good time to call it quits for the time being.
