  Very happy with this knife. The curve is perfect for spoons, bowls and kuksas. It's far easier to sharpen than other spoon knives and holds an edge really well even when used with the harder woods like Elm and Hawthorn. If you're in the market for a top notch bit of steel for your tool roll then this is definitely worth saving up for.

  I added this for removing more material than the standard size but it’s also good for shallower cuts and a little easier to sharpen - if you know this toolmaker then you won’t be surprised by the quality and finish - the look is rustic but it gives a nice grip and feel in the hand

  I can highly recommend S. Djärv spoon knives, this is the big version (there is also the standard and small sizes available), having used them for carving for some years. The blade edge is sharp on one side only, safer and easier to apply pressure in my opinion, and is therefore available in both left and right-handed versions. The edge comes razor sharp. The handle is made from Swedish elm, which is 110mm long and shaped to fit comfortably in the hand, it’s also ribbed for additional grip. As a size guide, the standard version is good for all applications, but excels at desert spoon size carving, the small is good for more intricate work and the big knife is great for larger spoons, utensils, kuksas or bowls. Woodlore’s service was excellent with fast next day delivery and can attest their after sales care is also of a high standard.

  I love everything about this Spoon Knife. The shape and texture on the handle make it comfortable for extended use. The blade holds a razor-sharp edge and the compound curve offers flexibility when shaping the bowl of a spoon.

  A great hand made carving spoon knife that holds an edge well. The blade is thick enough to keep it from flexing and narrow enough to keep the chattering to a minimum. With enough stropping, the blade will develop a nice curved cutting surface, allowing you enter and exit the cut with a minimum of effort. You will need to spend a little time to remove some deeper grind marks to smooth out the cutting edge surfaces, but the results are worth the time and you only need to do it once.

  Overall, the knife is an excellent size for me and the handle fits my normal sized man's hand nicely. The knife's steel and handle quality is excellent. My reason for 4 stars ( 4.5 stars not an option), not 5 is that half of the back side of the knife is not smooth and requires about 30-60 minutes to bring it to silky smoothness to be able to glide it easily in a spoon's bowl when cutting. This requires honing the back with progressive wet/dry sandpaper to 1200 grit and then stropping on leather with honing compound. Not hard to do and necessary to bring this high quality tool to perform at its maximum potential. The cutting edge also needs sharpening, for as it comes from SD, it is not as sharp as it can be with some sharpening work that any spoon carver should be capable of doing easily. This additional sharpening and tuning is not unusual on some high end tools like this SD, in order that the user can set it up to exactly her/his liking. Excellent hook carving tool.

  What a great tool, beautifully hand made and comfortable. Strong and holds an edge very well. Two things I dislike, firstly the handle has ridges. These ridges are uncomfortable, but easy to sand down. Secondly, the bevel was badly finished so I used a 240 grit to form a single clean bevel.
