Spoon knife standard is a well-known classic among spoon knives, and it is suitable for all projects where you need to carve into your material.
The difference between our spoon knives:
- Spoon knife standard is the most useful knife, and it can basically be a good friend in all projects. If you want to get your first spoon knife this is a good start.
- If you have stronger hands you can make more flat spoons, like a spatula or similar, with the Spoon knife large. It has got an extra large blade in order to more easily carve material out of larger projects. The curvature of the blade also got a flatter curvature which gives a smoother result. It is therefore a good tool to use after you have used the Spoon knife standard, for fine carving in deeper ladles and bowls.
- Our Spoon knife mini is a small, curvy and fun knife. With great sense of closeness and control you can carve really small spoons and bowls. The handle is the same size as on Spoon knife standard.
- The Children’s spoon knife has got the same blade as the Spoon knife standard, but the handle is smaller and thinner, so that it is a better fit for smaller hands.
The difference between right and left spoon knife:
- Right: If you are holding the right spoon knife in your right hand, you will carve towards you with it.
- Left: If you are holding the left spoon knife in your right hand, you will carve away from you with it.
- If you are left-handed, the spoon knives will function exactly the opposite way.
You might need both of the knives since they are complementing each other very well. Sometimes you can’t reach with one of them and you don’t want to carve against the fibres, that is a perfect opportunity to try out the other one and carve in the other direction. The spoon knife is an excellent tool for when carving spoons, small bowls and carving in burls (burrs).
If you want to become a good carver, one advice is to teach yourself to really make use of the hand that you are not holding the knife with. For instance, if you are carving with your right hand, away from you, you can use your left thumb to push the knife and, in that way, become stronger.
Another word for spoon knife is hook knife.
