Spoon carving set


Recommended Posts

Just got these glued up as a Christmas present for a friend. Cs70, stained elm handles and copper ferrules:

they'll get wooden scabbards, and I'll probably carve a hawks head on the hook knife scabbard, or else it's gonna look like one of those parrot head umbrella handles...

Is this friend a Jimmy Buffet fan? It might be appropriate.

 

Nice looking set of carvers Jake.

In which case, why not a parrot head umbrella handle? :lol:

That looks like a nice carving set. How hard was it to do the hook knife blade?  

Parrots a weird creatures, and very hard to get right. Raptors are easy. the hook knife was a challenge - you need to grind them and then forge to shape. I hollow ground the inside, but it still ended up slightly convex after forging on a bick. to do it again I'd probably forge it like a yakut knife with a deep hollow on the inside, and scroll it freehand. I ended up using a drum sander on a foredom to grind the inside and finish the bevels...

I was wondering that myself.   The one I have seen had a thin sleeve that slipped over the blade.  That looks substantial!  And not at all like a parrot-head umbrella handle. ;)

The back panel of the sheath has a pivot pin and locating stud:

Great set and awesome idea on sheath. Love that green in the handles too.
