Carving green wood into spoons, bowls, kuksa and other items has to be one of life's simplest and most soul nourishing pleasures. It is all the more enjoyable if you have invested in good quality knives that are comfortable to use for long periods.

Hand forged O1 carbon steel, carefully heat treated to give a smooth, sharp edge that is both long lasting and easy to maintain.

The beech handles are quite a clever shape, with the bulb slightly offset to the rear and a narrower part right next to the blade, so they fill the hand perfectly and give superb control.

Curved or Straight? It's a personal preference. The straight whittling knife works well on convex surfaces and is easy to hone yet the curved whittling knife is versatile enough to work on shallow concave surfaces.

Overall length: 170mm
Blade length:  40 - 50mm
