I use a drywall knife, an exacto knife, and a dremel with small sanding drums.
The knives give much better detail, but the dremel is really fast and easy.
If I carve anything else, I'm going to use a real carving knife with a decent sized handle.
Sharp edges are the key to good carving.

Oscillating Sanding roll
oscillating sanding roll
hobby knife (for gill details)
I got away from the dremel a little bit (though it is still an essential tool!) for carving just because it eats a little to fast for most of my applications
