Spoon carving knife blade right hand open curve
After many years forging my own tools I have finally started making hooks 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. This is the blade only and you’ll have to make your own handle.
This is the right handed blade with an open almost symmetrical curve. This is the blade I use for production spoon carving and it is great for finishing cuts on a spoon running down rather than across the grain. It is not quite so versatile as the compound curve knife though.
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.
