    Do you ever find a stick and not have a need to feather it?

    Quite often I sit on the steps with my hiking partner shooting the breeze and carving. Feather sticks and toothpicks, that's the limit of my ability. joe

    No sir I don't.
    But seine I started carving I'll never look at firewood the same way again.
    It takes me twice as long as it used to split a rick of wood because I keep looking for spoons.

    Yeah, I'm with you on that!

    Sometimes it seems like the knife calls to the stick.
