Order a Ben Orford Spoon Knife

This spoon knife is made in England by Ben Orford. Ben has a fantastic reputation in the UK for high quality tools, and himself is considered a very skilled greenwood-worker as well as knife maker. Check this video out of Ben at work turning a bowl on a pole lathe, one of my favourite inspirations... https://benandloisorford.com/videos/how-to-turn-a-bowl-on-the-pole-lathe/

Ben makes a number of different spoon carving tools and this is the Medium Crook Knife. Ben describes it here "Our Spoon Knives (or Crook Knives) have a curved blade with a single external bevel for the removal of material in the bowl of a spoon. They are available both left and right handed. Having a pair of both left and right is very useful when carving spoons and bowls as you can cut from both sides of the bowl, and also can use a push cut rather than a pull cut. If you are a beginner we would suggest starting with just one spoon knife for your dominant hand.

The Medium Crook Knife is good for more advanced work and larger spoons, ladles and noggin bowls.

This crook knife is supplied with a leather blade wrap to protect the edge. 


Please be aware you will need to come and pick up your knife from our workshop at the Arts Centre.
