This is our most popular set – it is all one needs to begin spoon carving. The hook and sloyd knives will last for a lifetime of of carving – they come absolutely sharp and ready to use.
The 4 spoon blanks we give folk a choice of species, we suggest for a beginner to get 2 basswood and 2 birch. The basswood is easy to carve for learning the craft; the birch, being more dense, is the standard wood for eating utensils in Scandinavia.
Included is a sheet of instructions in carving a spoon and in sharpening. If a person has no sharpening tools we recommend eventually getting the ‘sharpening special ‘, but it won’t be needed for carving this first set of spoons – we make tools that really hold an edge.
