Wood carving takes very sharp tools! This carver shows how he is holding the spoon in a vice and leveraging the knife to get these smooth even cuts. He says "There is leverage, I put a 16 inch long handle on it. So I can hold it with two hands and I rest my wrist/forearm on the vice just out of frame.
But yeah it's really sharp and it's elm wood that's still green, full of moisture so it's softer."
