Von Trott hook knives are highly sought after for a reason. Made from 01 tool steel with turned blackwood handles, the blade is made to perfection.

Hollow forged for easy sharpening and consistent bevels, these blades take zero skill to keep a razor sharp edge.

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.

Lovely Von Trott hook knife

This knife even better than promised - sharp, easy to strip and sharpen, well designed and beautifully made.

Kevin Hoffberg
Brilliant hook knife

I own a nice collection of knives by some great blade makers. I find myself consistently reaching for Peter’s brilliant hook knife first and most. The curve seems a perfect all arounder for almost any size and shape spoon bowl. It’s lovely to handle and look at. I have yet to do anything other than strop it which the blade loves. Buy one!

Von Trott hook knife

Absolutely loving my recent purchase of the Von Trott hook knife. My new go-to for finishing cuts. Wonderfully sharp and looking forward to the ease of re-sharpening. Highly recommended.

A top drawer hook

I am a reasonably experienced carver and own a decent set of high quality carving tools. This spoon knife by Pete Trott is an absolute beauty and a welcome addition to my 'toolbox'; the finish is excellent and the blackwood handle is ergonomic as well as aesthetically pleasing. I am very fond of 01 tool steel as it takes a very keen edge, responds very well to being put on the strop, and is easy to maintain. Add to this the tramrail blade design and you have a knife that can be kept razor sharp with relative ease. Most importantly for me I am partial to the relatively shallow sweep of this knife compared to other spoon knives i own. It does not have a pronounced belly but has rather a nice radius towards the tip, acute enough for the deeper sections of the bowl, and a flatter/shallower section that can be used almost like a dedicated finishing blade for the bowl. This is a quality tool through and through and it is clear to see that it has been forged by someone who is a master spooncarver in their own right.

Awesome knife

I bought my knife direct from 'the man' at the lost trades fair. All I can say is that it is brilliant, it eats through the wood with ease and retains it's edge. I like the rail design as it makes for easy sharpening/ maintenance. Can't recommend it highly enough.
The maker is a top guy 🙏🙏🙏
