“A Long Knife Pirate,” was the title of a posting on this web log on June 18, 2009.  That pirate has now been painted using the Painting Softly method.  This pirate was Whittle-Carved using only the knife that appears in the photographs as an illustration of how versatile the scimitar blade shape is for carving in nooks and crannies where another blade shape would not be as efficient.

Ralph Long makes a variety of knives and the quality of his knives along with a reasonable price causes me to highly recommend his knives to my carving friends.  Of course all custom knife makers make good knives with the final determination being personal choice.  Every carver should at least try a Ralph Long knife.

In the photographs above,the knife used to carve the pirate is part of the background.  The first photographs shows an un-painted pirate as a comparison with the next photograph of the painted pirate.  The next two photographs show the pirate at angles not always seen at first look and are presented here for study purposes.

These four photographs offer a panoramic view of the pirate in order to study the various detail of what makes a pirate a pirate.  One item is the ear ring, which poses the question, “How much does a pirate’s ear ring cost?”  When you hear the answer, you will talk “pirate” by saying, “A-r-r-r-r-r-r-r.”  The answer is, “A pirate’s ear ring costs a ‘buck-an-ear’ (buccaneer).”

Revisit “A Long Knife Pirate” to study the process described in carving a six inch tall pirate using only a Ralph E. Long knife.
