Spoon knife left hand compound curve

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


After many years forging my own tools I have finally started making my own spoon knife for sale. The are made from an excellent high alloy steel, very hard and tough so they hold an edge for a long time. They come razor sharp and ready to use. The handles are beech and around 7.5″ long. This is a little longer than most knifemakers use and I find it allows a greater range of grips to be used efficiently.

This is the left handed blade with a compound gradually tightening curve that I find a good all round shape for everything from shallow spoons to ladles and kuksas. If I am only spoon carving I tend to use the open sweep hook.

You can see a video of one of my knives in use and the three common grips I recommend for using them here

And whilst the knives come razor sharp and ready to use eventually you will need to sharpen it yourself. This video shows the method I use.

    Well before we even get onto the knife itself, that was incredibly quick delivery! Ordered yesterday morning and arrived this afternoon, impressive dispatch time, very pleased!

    Now the knife itself. I am new to carving and this is my first hook knife and already enjoying using it (currently practising on a rough piece of old wood exploring the techniques Robin shows in his video here – )- this is a quality tool, and I may have to get myself the open hand version in the near future for added variety!

    One very happy carver!
