The most important thing when it comes to woodcarving is a sharp knife. Instead of being a wonderful, creative experience, it can become both irritating and dangerous if the knife is blunt. A real sharp knife gets you on the right path quite easily. This knife has a single-edged stainless steel blade for right hand use. The back of the knife is not sharp which gives you the possibility to use your left hand to push the blade with your fingers from the back. This blade has a narrow curve. We have optimized the blade to make it run smooth over the inside of the spoon or bowl. Improved edge bevels complete the blade and give you the optimum carving experience. To protect both you and the knife it comes with a simple but ingeniously designed edge protection made out of Swedish vegetable tanned leather manufactured locally with cowhides from the region
6 3/8" overall. Double-edge carbon steel hook blade is ideal for spoon carving.
