Spoon knife right hand open curve

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


After many years forging my own tools I have finally started making my own hook 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 an open curve and is the tool I use all the time when I am carving spoons.

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.

    Some time ago Bought the Robin Wood axe which has been outstanding and my favourite axe for carving bar none. Yesterday I ordered this Knife and it arrived this morning – brilliant service! I took it straight out to a piece of nice ash and it cuts just like advertised. I will need to practice to get the most out of it but it is a really nice knife and leaves a brilliant smooth finish – I have never been able to get a smooth finish straight from the knife before but with this knife I now understand how it is possible. Simply first class. I could not recommend these tools enough, thank you Mr Wood.

    Fantastic spoon knife! I’ve almost carve 100 spoons with it and only had to sharpen once. If you keep it honed it works for a long long time. The handle gives you a lot of leverage and it is easy reach all the way across even the larger spoon bowls.

    Very Good!

    This is my first Spoon Knife. It came out of packaging extremely sharp! The first thing I used it on was a scrap piece of Base Wood. It cuts like the proverbial ‘hot knife through Butter’. Paper thin shavings. I just hope I can keep it as sharp.
    Special mention of the handle is in-order. I don’t have a lot of experience with Spoon Knives, but many I’ve seen have relatively short and stubby handles. To me this makes no sense. I viewed Robin’s tutorial on using a Spoon Knife and when he pointed out the extended handle and explained his reasoning behind the design, it intuitively made sense. Now, that I’ve had a chance to use the knife, I’m even more convinced I made the right decision. It very comfortable and allows a variety of grasps. The extra length gives you additional leverage for pivoting grasps.

    I’m a happy camper!

    A great piece of kit! The long handle adds tremendously to its usefulness, the blade is incredibly sharp from the box too, though with a nice curve and rounded tip.

    Aside from that, the fantastic service I’ve recieved and prompt delivery means that I will certainly be back.

    Many thanks

    I’ve tried many spoon knives over the last couple of years: Hans Karlsson (previous favourite), Ben Orford (the Barn hook), Svante Djarv and about 10 that I forged myself.

    This beats them all – cuts cleanly, accurately, easily, smoothly and leaves a great finish. The handle is comfortable and controlled in use, and the extra length is useful too.

    Very happy customer.
