Aesthetics

This is a typical looking hook knife, with a sharp blade on one end, which makes it great for making hollow wood carvings like spoons. The brown handle is smooth whilst the blade is a glistening silver. The BeaverCraft Spoon Carving Hook Knife SK5 has double bevelled razor-sharp edges.

Sizes

It has a 55mm blade and a 200mm handle making the total length 255 mm.  The handle fits nicely in the palm of your hand as you work, as it is about four times longer than the blade. 

Feel

This knife has a good feel and comfort thanks to the ergonomically shaped handle. When it sits in your hand, you can easily manipulate it in the direction that you want.  The handle also feels smooth in your hand because of the linseed oil that covers it. 

Durability

The handle on the BeaverCraft Spoon Carving Hook Knife SK5 is made of oak, which is a very strong and durable material. You can carve at ease knowing that the handle will not crack under pressure. The blade is made of carbon steel, also famed for its strength and durability.

Price

This knife is one of the more affordable ones on the market. If you will be buying online, there is a chance that the cost will be driven up by shipping costs, so you may need to weigh your odds when it comes to this.

Our Verdict

This is a two in one knife which does a great job of carving out hollow shapes. The deep bevel means that you get deep cuts, whilst the sharpness means that you will also get accurate cuts. We like the BeaverCraft Spoon Carving Hook Knife SK5, because of the control, accuracy, durability, and affordable price. It gives you a smooth cut and perfectly curved shapes in the wood. 

The way this knife is built makes it an easy knife to be used by both beginners and professional carvers. The outcome will depend on your skill level. The comfortable feel helps you feel at ease when you are working with the knife. Also, it comes pre-sharpened so you will not need to do that when you get the knife. We think this is a great buy if you want to be carving spoons. Happy shopping!
