I have a Seahorse Whittler

Patrick Gibbons, Katy, TX
All 3 blades are shaped properly for woodwork. I don't care for the stainless steel and have not seen Case make this knife in Chrome Vanadium. I don't care for the double bevel. This knife is purposed for carving. The double bevel is counterproductive. Mora carvers are so much better but I have wanted to have a folder with a Scandi grind. I've been meaning to sharpen away the secondary bevel on the Case. A lot of work for the three blades. I agree a double beveled knife can be used for marking, but not for other woodworking tasks. I always carry a traditional folder which comes into use daily. Try sharpening a pencil with a double beveled knife. Makes it harder than it has to be.
