The Spoon Scorp is a carving tool that I have been using and developing over the past eight years.
This is the most versatile spoon carving tool on the market today. It features my unique design of 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 pine box to cover the blade.
Current batch of handles are Elm.
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. The polished convex outer bevel allows the blade to turn smoothly through a hollowing cut.
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 has a finely honed cutting edge set up primarily for working in green wood, finishing cuts can be made after seasoning but roughing out in seasoned hard wood is not advised.
You must be over 18 years of age to purchase this product.
