The Spoon Scorp is a tool that I have been using and developing over the past seven years.
This is the most versatile spoon carving tool on the market today. It features a looped blade, hand forged by Nic Westermann, honed by myself and set in an ergonomic faceted hardwood handle. Each tool is supplied honed and ready to carve with a protective wooden box to cover the blade.
Standard - Current batch is handled in Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) with matching blade box.
Deluxe - This limited edition version features a stacked timber handle and laminated blade box with hand braided lime bark cordage peg lanyard. Current models feature a timber combination of Plum, Sycamore and reclaimed Mahogany.
The blade is formed with an internal diameter of 25mm with a shallow sweep back to the tang. The hollow forged inner bevel means that keeping the tool sharp can be achieved relatively easily whilst maintaining the correct bevel angle.
This tool replaces the need for independent left and right handed spoon knives, all of the spoons I carve are roughed out and finished using a spoon scorp. The blade is set up with a fine cutting edge primarily for working in green wood, finishing cuts can be made after seasoning but roughing out in seasoned hard wood is not advised.
