Well, more like woodcarving.

I recently got my hands on both a nice, strong and sharp knife of my own
and some thick branches of some unknown (for me anyway) wood that's very soft to the touch, but very very hard.

I've carved one with interesting results, but I need to know:
What would you recommend for carving wood with normal, non-electronic tools?
Besides a chisel (that I still don't have), and my knife?

Bass wood, my good friend is the place to be.

It is soft, and works nice with a knife.

I see, so Bass wood works fine.

That is what I'm saying.
