Outstanding value for money. For the price and level of quality, Wood Tools hook knives are probably the best value on the market. I've used them for several years with barely a problem to report. Highly recommended, especially the deep open curve.
The Wood Tool hook knife arrived on Friday and I immediately put it to use on a small recycled Australian cedar piece.
How heartening that you can still buy such tools. It did every thing asked of it; rolled, sliced and cut. lovely control from the octagonal handle. The generous length of the handle seemed to give it a nice balance in my fat carpenters hands.
This tool looks like it has been made for a purpose by someone who cares.
