Tools used on the trout

I finished the outer profile of the trout. Here are the main tools I used to rough it out so far: Warren knife, Mike Shipley knife, Allen Goodman knife, Helvie knife, large chizel, try-square, pencil, rasp, coping saw, Flexcut carving jack, Kirschen (Two Cherries) gouge, Pfeil (Swiss Made) V-tool, leather strop and Flexcut stropping compound.

  1. What wood do you normally use? Also, at the end of whittling, do you use a type of spray or put something on it to give it a nice finish?
