Default Best bit for detailed work

I am doing the Marine emblem and struggling with feed rate depth and which bit to use. The 60 degree v bit is decent, but results in a lot of chipping of the fine detail. Any suggestions.

What kind of wood?
What feeds and speeds?
A picture, or preview showing relative size and detail will allow those in the know to assist you.

I have to say I love this forum. You guys are a great help..
I am using a 60* vbit, 16000 RPM, 100IPM feed rate. This was done in plywood (Furniture grade), but I will be doing it in pine.

I have a 15* engraving bit I was planning on trying, would I need to slow the IPM down? Thanks for the help..

Due to the cross grains plywood seldom will hold good detail when carving. Pine, being soft may do the same. Maple is one species I would use to allow the detail to come thru in a project like yours.

I would always start slow (sub 60ipm) on a new bit or wood. Then increase as I went along to dial those variables in for each job.
