  The knives are excellent for Whittling. Very affordable and easy to use and sharpen.

  I blame Keith Whitehead for having to buy this! Before my Fundamental Bushcraft course I hadn't made anything in wood since school. Now I'm buying specialist wood carving tools for my new hobby of hand carving walking and hiking sticks! This is a really good knife, easy to handle, very sharp and the edge is easily maintained. A nice comfy handle and very good for the job of trimming sticks and shaping handles etc. Thanks Woodlore for excellent service, and Keith of course, for awakening my interest in carving, who knew?

  I already own a Mora knife and was amazed by the value for money factor. After whittling and carving for a time I wanted a knife which could handle the finer detail, already a Mora convert opted for this model. Once again I am not disappointed. The knife arrived promptly and was sharp enough to use out of the packaging, with a little work on the wet stone it was razor sharp. My grandson (aged 12) showed an interest in what I was doing and now pops over for whittling lessons with me. Using this small knife, I learnt how to use a knife safely by watching Ray. Good knife, excellent value, does the job and has enhanced even further my relationship with my grandson.

  Put the knife straight to work and I was amazed at how sharp it was. I have never experienced wood carving like that. Felt like I was whittling a piece of cheddar cheese! Thanks Mora and thanks Woodlore for your epic shop. I think this knife will be the present my friends get at Christmas this year!

  The knife arrived next day and was razor sharp. I used it the following week on the Wood Carving Course for more precise work where it's stiff, slim blade excelled. Can't believe the quality at such value.

  Very nice little knife that is exceptionally sharp. Easy to control and ideal for some basic carving. Handle also seems reasonably comfortable.

  Cracking wee knife for a beginner such as myself. A tough carbon steel blade, good grip, balance and really quite beautifully designed. It has kept its sharpness after a week of carving. Well worth the money. Glad I remembered Ray's website after all of the other wood carving knife sites online.
