Word Dissection

calligraphy

  • Take away my last 7 letters, and I’m a useful article held in the hand
  • Without my first 3 and last 4 (letters),  I am the noblest animal
  • Take away my 1st 6 letters, and I’m a watery article of commerce
  • Minus my last 4 and I’m an author
  • My  4, 5, 6, 2 is seen in some mammals, a showy thing keeping the neck warm
  • Without my 1st 7, I’m a portion of the body
  • My whole is taught early in grade school.

Can you figure out the word?

    The second clue was a bit confusing… I’d change “1st” to “first”, because I was reading it as subtract first, third and last four. But then again, I was being stupid thinking of “nape” instead of “mane” on the fifth clue.
