Spoon knife right hand compound curve

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 8 customer ratings
(8 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 right 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.

    Amazing piece of carving kit. Very popular so out of stock fast! Highly recommended – slices through wood and very easy to use. The larger style handle makes for more grip manipulation and the blade is very sharp. An essential spoon carving purchase!

    Good and fast service. Fantastic tool to work with. Keeps an edge for ages. The best i’ve used so far.

    Ordered this spoon knife at 10:30 on Friday and it was delivered at 09:15 on Saturday. Excellent service.

    I am relatively new to spoon carving but have been using other hook knives with varying degrees of success. This knife, however, is an excellent tool and really speeds up the process, is easy to use and provides an excellent finish. The video showing the different grips was also extremely useful. Well done.

    Ordered Sunday night and arrived Tues. Had bought a mora version but even after hours sharpening and stropping still so hard to cut with…tore the wood … was really dissapointed…so decided to take punt on Mr woods creation. From the 1st cut, the difference was astonishing..actually made a spoon within 20 mins of unpacking it. Absolutely razor sharp! Top of left thumb also now spoon shaped;) can not fault..real genuine quality from someine who obviously cares about what he sells.

    I got one of these spoon carving knives about a year ago and have been using it a fair bit

    It is a really great tool and comes super sharp.

    If your thinking about staring spoon carving I would really recommend going for this spoon carving knife. It’s a quality tool and reasonably priced.

    Unlike many others I have seen this has a longer handle which just helps to give you more options for hand grips.

    Robin… I have to say, this knife did not disappoint! It is beautiful and arrived razor sharp. It is so enjoyable to carve with. The long handle is great and allows soo many grips to carve spoons with. I am new to spoon carving and am glad I spent the extra money on this knife that I am looking forward to using for
    years. If you are thinking about buying this knife, it is 100% worth it!! I just wish you were in the US because I would have bought more if the shipping were less. Well done Robin!

    I have been working for a couple of months with this knife and I love it. This is my first hook knife and I’m a total beginner so I can’t compare it with other knives. The video on the different holding grips helped a lot. The blade is really sharp and I love the long handle. My hand doesn’t get tired too fast.
    Thanks for making the great tool!

    I bought this spoon knife through woodland craft supplies, I’ve been struggling carving burr kuksas, they are really tough and my hands are full of blisters. This knife has made carving so much easier, the large solid handle means I can hold it like I would a Indian crook knife, I can even get 2 hands on the handle for more power, the blade is really tough and sharp and is a pleasure to use, Thanks Robin.
