"Just keep the flat side to the outside of the line and lean the chisel over
the line at an angle, cutting away from the line on the outside of the line.
It was great for me...

Barbara that is exactly the way I use my toh, the flat side against the line
using it at an angle. I have the chisels with the longer handles as the
ones that fit into my palm hurt my hand. It gives great control and a very
clean line. So I carve holding my toh like a pencil and use the flat side
as my cutting blade. I think the toh is like my double bladed kitchen
knives and is sharp on both sides. Paul and Frank gave us a very good
sharpening demo at the summit. Paul said to get the flat side very flat
first and than sharpen the angle side of the toh and than be sure to get rid
of the burr. When Richard gave the bokashi demo, at the summit, my little
plate was on the table, if you saw it, it was all lines, and they were all
carved exactly as I described. This was shina and the lines came out very
fine and delicate and clean, also that was the board that I oiled with
linseed oil and that kept it from splintering. Thanks to all of you who gave
good demos at our second summit, they were very informative and stimulating.
