A high quality hook knife (spoon knife) designed for use with a combined 30 years of spoon carving experience.

These hook knives 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, allowing for a great range of grips to be used efficiently.

The open curve spoon knife is perfect for smoothing surfaces. The shallow curve of the hook knife translates to a smooth finish on the wood. This works well for everything from carving eating spoons to finishing carved bowls.

This blade 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 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.

Great knife

I wanted an upgrade to my Mora hook knife, I'm so glad I did, the wood tools hook knife is so nice, sharp, holds an edge, and is really nice to use.
Chris was super helpful and responsive with my order too when I needed to change my order a wee bit. And I love the ever expanding range of tools! Great work guys

Peter Roeth
Very impressed

I'm a beginner and wanted good quality tools at a reasonable price. I was not disappointed. These blades were fully honed and usable straight out of the box. The service was excellent and very friendly.

Exceeded my expectations

The tool is a quality product, just like the service I received from this business, packaged with love and excellent follow up service, keep up the good service

The best

Well gurys not a lot to say I am new at this spooncarving .Ithink the two hook knifes are fantastic the best I have housed ,the book is great haven't had not had time to read it all.the service u offer is terifck . Allan

Great knife and service

This hook knife is a game changer for me. Up till now I've soley used the mora hook knives and while they're good, the Wood Tools open curve is great. The wider diameter and longer handle gives superb grip and extra leverage while the open curve lets you smooth out those flatter areas of a spoon bowl. Thanks Chris and Lauren for great and swift service.
