Spoon knives

Our spoon knives is made in four sizes. Seen from above: Big brother, Standard, Mini and Child.
Every size is made in both right- and left style. On the picture all knives are in right stile.

The different use between big or standard spoon carving knife:
Standard is the most useful knife. If you have strong hands you can carve not shallow spoons e.g. mixing spoons with our big spoon carving knife. You could also use it to smoothen surfaces after you have used the standard spoon knife in deeper spoons or bowls.

New model! Mini spoon carving knife is a small and curved knife. You come really close and have good controll when you carve very small spoons and bowls. The handle is the the same as standard, but you could also have it with children handle.

Children´s spoon knives have the same blade as standard but the handles are smaller.

Different between right and left:
Right Spoon knife: If you hold a right spoon knife in your right hand you carve towards you and have the tip upwards.
Left spoon knife: If you hold left spoon knife in your right hand you carve away from you and have the tip upwards.

If you are left handed you use the spoon knives the opposite way.

You need both right and left spoon knives. Sometimes you have to change knife when you need to work against the grain.
But the big trick if you want to be a good carver is to learn to use the hand which you not holding the knife in. For example if you carve with the right hand away from you, you could use your left thumb to assist by pushing the blade. Spoonknives are a great tool to have when you want to make spoons or small bowls.
