I've got a knife!

    Now what can I whittle?

    Ordered a folding knife the other day and it was waiting for me when I got in. I want to do some twig whittling

    but it's dark and cold and windy outside.

    And if I go out looking for a twig in the dark I might pick up something else by mistake[​IMG]

    Anything indoors that can be whittled, I wonder.....
    Cheese?
    Soap?

    I've got a vegetable peeler that is so sharp it lives in a sheeth and we had a massive panic in the kitchen the other night, when Mr Kibosh accidentally chucked the plastic sheeth out with the potatoe peelings. It was almost a national emergency.

  7. Mr Kinsa has just sliced a big chunk off his finger when he dived into the drawer where he keeps his mandoline - a slicer, not a musical instrument! Blood on the floor and everything. I suggested we wrapped it in something but he said he would remember in future ...

    These things are lethal. It takes no applied pressure at all to peel the veg. You lay the mandoline on the veg and just gently move it on one direction and the cut is so deep and clean it lifts the carpet.

    I still have a white line around my thumb where I very almost sliced the top off. And that was with a mere craft knife. Best stay away from big ones on the internet?
