    Well, I guess that is a good thing yes?

    I tried to find the word on my own, but failed. I even went to Wikipedia to look up if it has any information, but they did not mention whiskers on the entire thing! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger

    If anybody needs to know why I want to know this specific word, it is because my uncle who owns many of the crafting artwork. This is not ordinary woodcraft which can be seen publicly, in fact, it is not even done on wood, but it is done on ivory, sesame weed, and of course tiger's whiskers, so it is totally correct to call it woodcraft.

    He just need my help to find out where he can show his collection overseas and I'm trying to help him. If anybody cares to help me, that would be highly appreciated as well.

    Are you from an English-speaking nation? I can't imagine any English speaker not learning this word as part of their early childhood vocabulary.

    What is wrong with knowing the word "technical"?

    It is okay. If it helps, I am still a big fan of your style.

    Kiwi Man, do you know the technical term for Kiwi? Actinidia deliciosa. It was also formerly referred to as Chinese gooseberry, then was renamed for export marketing reasons in the 1950s; briefly to melonette, and then later by New Zealand exporters to kiwifruit. [​IMG]
