Great for any project where you need to scoop out a surface like spoons or bowls. Allows for a more aggressive curve than a straight knife. Sharpened on one edge - hollow or flat ground options. The General Carver makes a great addition to this knife for your spoon carving tool bag.

By far the best tool in my bag aside from the twca cam also purchased from here! Tools hold an edge much longer than any others I've had! Just great reliable tools!

How We Make Carving Knives - Video
PLEASE remember you are ordering a hand made knife, not something stamped out by a machine. As with any handmade item there are differences in the exact construction, therefore the knife may vary slightly from the photos shown. The wood handle you see in the photo may not be the exact color and figure pattern you receive. Photo may not be actual size, please refer to given dimensions.
Our blades have a near mirror finish. This allows the blade to move through the wood smoothly. There may be tooling marks still on the blade which do not affect the performance of the knife.
Each knife is individually made and we make every effort to get your knife in the mail within 10 working days, this allows 4 days for shipping. So approximately 2 weeks, give or take a day or two. Please feel free to ask any questions before ordering. email@example.com
