Carving seems more and more an 'inner game'.we often think that we only do a few 'things', let's call it 5, when we are carving.
These are not so much techniques as attitudes that we have: focuses, ways of working.
It's hard to overemphasise how profound these things feel to us sometimes. we seem to mention them to students ("Here's a pearl. Catch!") but we are never really sure if they get it.
Anyway, judge for yourself.
