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. Orford “Sloyd” knives get their name from the Swedish word for craft, since they are designed to be perfect for craftwork. Use them for small carving projects where you don’t need strength of a full tang and as a backup for a bigger knife. Sloyd knives are made of 01 tool steel, great for edge retention, with a tapered, faceted handle made of English Elm, chosen because it is especially split resistant. This is a lovely little knife that just encourages you to get in touch with your inner carver. Comes in 2” and 3” sizes. Blade is tempered to 57-59 Rockwell. Wipe it clean and give it a nice coat of Camilla oil for optimal wear, then return it into its beautiful handcrafted sheath.

Made in the UK.
