You can't beat spoon carving in its ability to produce something beautiful and useful quickly. (Bear this in mind as you toil on a massive woodworking project.) As some have said, just take some green wood, carve away the part that isn't a spoon, then soak in linseed oil.
We’re delighted to sell spoon carving tools from Ben & Lois Orford, British toolmakers and leatherworkers inspired by Wille Sundqvist, the Swedish spoon carving guru.
Among the smallest Orford knives, the Chip Carving and Engraving Knife has a 1” blade and full sized handle. What sets it apart from other small Orford knives is its Wharncliffe style blade profile, which has a rounded spine that tapers to a point, making it ideal for chip carving and engraving. The rounded spine allows the finger of the hand holding the tool to rest on the back edge for extra control.
As with other small-bladed Orford knives, the Chip Carving and Engraving knife will also suit beginners or children, since they can feel the technique without the intimidation of a larger blade. Great for all kinds of engraving and fine detail work.
Made of 01 tool steel, great for edge retention. The tapered, faceted handle is good for universal grips and is made of English Elm, chosen because it is especially split resistant.
Packed sharp and ready to use. Blade is protected with a leather strip. Made in the UK.
