Description

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Above is a left handed #2 Sweep, edge is facing down.

Comes with custom sheath.
This is the deeper of the 2 sweeps allowing finish cutting of the bowls of ladles and deeper spoons. I am often asked “If I only get one sweep – which should I get?” While we sell about equal amounts of either, I normally say pick this one first as it has a broader range of curves to choose from – that is unless one knows they will be doing principally shallower bowl shapes.  Below is a silhouette of the blades for comparison.

    Received my # 1 and 2 open sweep knives. Could not be happier. Excellent quality, handles are beautiful. Repeat customer and the wait is worth it. For all the USA carvers, we can purchase quality tools in the states. Del, I will be a repeat customer.

    I recently wanted to upgrade my old tools and was lucky enough to find Del’s work online and ordered the #2 Sweep. It is a lovely tool. I typically carve cooking spoons, eaters, and little jam spoons. The curve of the #2 is fantastic for getting the depth of the bowls of my ladles, as well as shaping my smaller spoons. The quality of the blade is incredible and the handle shape is very comfortable and fits my hand well. I strop the knife using Del’s two sided stropping paddle and compound. The video on stropping technique was very helpful and I’ve been able to maintain the edge easily. It stays sharp and has made my carving easier with less fatigue to my hands. I haven’t picked up my old spoon knives since I received this one from Del. I’ve already returned as a customer to expand my collection of Pinewood Forge tools by adding the #1 Sweep, and the 2 1/4 Sloyd. I’m constantly impressed with the quality of these tools and know I’ll be coming back to Pinewood Forge for years to come. Thank you Del, Celine, and Scott!
