A high quality hook knife made from hard and tough high alloy steel so they hold an edge for a long time. The handles are beech and around 19cm long, allowing for a great range of grips to be used.
The open curve hook knife is perfect for smoothing surfaces. The shallow curve of this spoon carving knife allows for a smoother finish on the wood. This works well for everything from carving eating spoons to finishing carved bowls and kuksas.
This hook knife comes razor sharp and ready to use however eventually you will need to sharpen it yourself. Check out our tool care page for sharpening methods. We highly recommend including a sheath with your purchase to protect your knife and reduce the amount of time you need to spend re-sharpening.

We recommend only sharpening hook knives on the inside edge as you have a flat registration point to work with. The outside of the blade has a convex surface from the tip to heel as well as from the edge to the spine which means that there is a complexity to could lead to headaches if you get it wrong.
Regular stropping however on the inside edge using a dowel with stropping compound and a stropping paddle for the outside edge is a great way to maintain a keen edge for longer before you will even need to think about resharpening your hook knives.
