Whittling Contest
The 2016 contests were led by one of Arizona's senior carvers. He let the participants know what the project subject is at the beginning of each contest. As usual during the contest each participant was allowed to use only one knife of their choice. The contest was judged by the senior carver and the show chairman. 





Bring your knife and joins us in a challenge to your creativity.
