Description

The Hans Karlsson SPOON KNIFE is an exceptional hand-made tool from Swedish makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB.

They are rarely available!

Used primarily to carve the bowl of spoons, but will deal with any small hollow feature.

Available with either a RIGHT or LEFT grind.

SELECT FROM THE DROP-DOWN BOX ABOVE.

When choosing spoon (or crook) knives, having both a right and left ground version is very useful. When carving the bowl of a spoon this allows you to cut from both sides and cut with the grain, leaving a smoother surface. If you are right handed, a right ground spoon knife is used to make cuts towards yourself.  A left ground knife has the cutting edge on the opposite side and used with a pushing cut. Vice versa if you are left handed.

If purchasing your first spoon knife we would suggest that you buy the grind that cuts towards you e.g. if you are right handed choose a right handed spoon knife and vice versa if you are left handed.

Because of its slightly longer handle this spoon knife is particularly good to reach further into the inside wall of shrink boxes (krympburk).

In 2011 and 2019 we visited Hans, Mats, Andreas and Johan at Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB at their impressive workshop in Motala, Sweden. The expertise, knowledge and attention to detail that is given to all their tools was abundantly clear. The forge and workshop is a happy welcoming place, and serves great coffee and bread and cheese!

The polished blade is 55mm (2 1/4″) long with a 120mm (4 3/4″) long lightly oiled handle in ASH or ELM.

Total length 175mm (7″).

The longish bevel is ground to about 25 degrees

The Hans Karlsson SPOON KNIFE is a beautiful tool and a joy to use.
