I used to carve when I was a kid, picked it up from my dad, who was in Boy Scouts for years, as a member and then leader.
Now that our son is in Cub Scouts, and I'm his den leader, we're starting to work on knife safety. Our daughter got her own knife a couple years ago, she's in Girl Scouts. But we've been making her do the same knife safety that the boys do.
So far, they are only using plastic knives on soap, they'll get their chip cards next year, with knives when the parents decide they want them to have one lol.
I may need to pick up a carving set for myself

Because of that, the carving work is progressing weeks ahead of schedule. At that rate it will likely be finished in a few days.
Then, I'll need to start a new one.
