Crook Knives

Thought it was about time i did a short post on some of the Crook Knives i use on a regular basis.

Pictured left, are the three crook knives i use the most often, from top to bottom, unknown maker, but i know it originated in Canada, the middle one is a JLT Knives blade that Adam made for me, shortly before he disappeared off the scene, i mounted the blade into a handle of locally sourced English Elm and i use this particular knife a lot when making Shrink Pots as it has an external bevel, which i find preferable for that type of hollowing, the bottom one is a Ben Orford that i recently acquired from a chap on BCUK and although I've not owned it for long, it is already a firm favourite.

I don't use these knives every day, but i certainly use them a couple of times each week in the course of my work,  superb tools, that in my opinion, should form part of every carvers tool kit, if you don't have one, get one, you wont regret it.
