    Sandy I have found a No 4 scalpel and a No 26 blade work very well also

    I was using a scalpel until recently when I decided to try out Paul’s type of knife. I find the new knife to be much safer as the scalpel blades are much shorter. I managed to run the scalpel over my fingers on more than one occasion and after the last time decided enough was enough. I also use my Dads old penknife for marking out too. It’s a beautiful little pearl handled affair with nice long thin blades that are made of the most amazing steel that sharpens like magic. I like the Stanley most of all but sometimes it’s nice to be able to get nostalgic and use Dads old knife.

    Nice post ken… something to read over at lunch.

    I wish that what I know now, I knew when I was younger.

    Just an update.

    I was watching the way Paul was using his knife on a video and some of his comments got me thinking about how I’ve been using the Mora. I like the Mora for a lot of reasons but after using it for a while I’ve decided the blade is too thick. I keep moving the square with it. Also the handle that fits my hand fairly well also turns the knife into a health and safety disaster when working on a Workmate. I appear to be incapable of watching a knife fall to the floor after I’ve sharpened it. I keep trying to catch it and that’s ALWAYS a bad idea for me.

    So back to the Stanley pocket knife it is.
