Carving Knives

What is a wood carving knife?

Wood carving knives, whittling knives or sloyd knives is considered to be one of the most important and versatile tool for wood carving. Although carving employs the use of chisels and gouges and whittling only the use of a knife, the terms “whittling” and “carving” are used interchangeably. 

Which is the best wood carving knife?

Depending on what and how you carve there is a knife type available for every wood carving job and taste. To The Spoon Crank shop you can find a big collection of wood carving knives for beginners and experienced carvers, made by brands like Morakniv from Sweden and independent knife makers like Aleks Majcen in Slovenia and Adam Ashworth in the United Kingdom. For spoon carving, a Morakniv wood carving knife (120) and a hook knife (164) will take you really long as they are probably the best knives for spoon carving you can get for your money. And if you’d like to learn to carve together with your children there is the Morakniv’s Scout knife or Opinel’s No7, My first Opinel knife, they both feature a rounded blade tip.

Do you ship all wood carving knives worldwide?
