  • Hook knife maker?

    78FE49A7-9960-423F-B682-35C8DA5F4B5D.jpg Hi, I’m wondering anyone recognizes these hook knives and can tell me who made them. They came with the foam covers you see. Got them 12-15 years ago. They are quality knives.

    Looks like Pinewood Forge, but I can’t be certain.

      If there's purpose in design, those are meant for carving spoons and kuksa.
      Are there any maker's marks in the steel?
      Scandinavian style round handles, round shank and center-hafted
      like the Mora #162, #163 and #164.

      Certainly not like the common blade sweeps found in First Nations tools here in the Pacific Northwest.
      Not from the popular blade smiths and not among the home made designed sweeps.

        Thanks guys. I am pretty sure Dave is right on this. I believe I did get them from Pine Wood Forge.

              The drawback in that design is that you can't carve a flat bottom in a dish. Particularly along the edges.

              A far more productive design for this is a crooked knife forged in the Pacific Northwest. Various sweeps but very popular among west coast carvers, First Nations in particular. While you can buy all sorts of blades with all sorts of sweeps, you can approximate these with worn down and repurposed farrier's hoof trimming knives.

                I found another one, here in the PacNW. First Nations bladesmiths and have been in business for several years. Looks like they sell sets of crooked knives, a set needed to carve a particular project such as a canoe paddle. Makes the bottom line pretty rich. I'd rather buy from open stock.

                However, you do get to see the variety of sweeps that they believe that you need.
