I have not used a traditional much for wood carving (have done some long sessions with knives that were really not suited for it!). I think key will be how the knife fits your hand, and how the other blades lie when closed. GEC also makes a three blade whittler, which looks great, but it does not have a warnclif blade. Four blade congress is my favorite for whittling (with four different blade profiles as opposed to two redundant pair). I like a queen whitler in D2, but I bought my daughter (8) a Med case stockman (with a pen blade) to use when we go camping. I use a Mora (yeah i know he said folder) to start and a Peanut to finish (Note that I don't do greatly detailed whittling or anything).
I used just the #25 Sheepsfoot Jack in the picture to whittle my first (and only) ball-in-cage you see here.

I don't like congress or whittler patterns very much but would function very well solely as a whittling knife. The Wharncliffe and the small Clip are a great blade combination, and they are ground nice and thin. If you keep your eyes open occasionally one will pop up on the auction site, or even here on BF though. Peter will show you some of what First Nations, then the Courier de bois, and Voyageurs used to survive on in the woods.

If you have ever spend a week or more whittling a hickory pick handle down to fit a socket, with nothing more than a pocket knife, you know about blisters and sore thumbs! I found the small pen blade to be pretty useful, especially in the final shaping of the ball. Myrna Pearman, educator and conservationist, will share some highlights of the 2012 beaver activity.
