Woodcarving

I am looking for a good wood carving knife. I have a Fallkniven F1 and love using it but it is a bit to big for some of the fine detailed work I would like to do. I would like to get some thing like the Mora carving knives but I cant find them for sale anywhere other than the UK and Amazon which doesn't ship to New Zealand. So do you guys have any suggestions for some carving knives that I can easily get in New Zealand for no more the 60 bucks.Cheers.See More
