One more new arrival. IXL whittler with file work. The knife has great walk and talk. Only issue is the broken scale at one end. I will repair it in the near future.

British steel takes a wicked edge. I found that with my straight razors too.

Does this Waterville count as a whittler. The description when I bought it said Waterville half whittler. Thought you guys might like to see it anyways. Is there such a thing as Half Whittler? Thanks for looking! :)

I’m not sure what what it is called Wood Walker, but it’s a good old maker and a good looking knife. I really like the pattern for sure ::tu:: ::tu::

That is a very nice knife woodwalker, and a very desirable stamp.

"Half whittler" is not a term I would use.

I think your knife is a Wharncliffe pen.

I just got another IXL Whittler. My oldest to date. Pre 1890 with horn handles. Great walk and talk. Half stops on both secondary blades. The blades took a very keen edge.
