Andrew Jones

This is an excellent knife, bought as an extra knife to the 3 that I have.

Gillian Knowles

This is a fantastic knife, cuts beautifully, light and easy to handle. I hope to buy more of the set but this was a great one to start with.

PirloMasterClass

This item is BEAUTIFUL. I will often just stare at it marvelling at its simple beauty.
I have the curved knife. It is very strong. This knife will do all you ask and more. It can carve or whittle anything I used so for

David Brown

This knife delivers everthing super sharp and a perfect fit in the hand. I have several woodcarving knives from top makers but this knife beats them all its very very good. I cant wait till I own the full set.

Wendy Collins

This is the second knife I purchased and as I expected the quality is supreme. The shape of the blade allows intricate work and is comfortable in the hand. A note of caution when in use the blade is very very sharp.

John

Simple well crafted Japanese elegance and craft. Perfect for my intricate carvings. Would have given it 5 but for the fact that Pfeil produce a similar knife for almost half the price but i have not tried it. Pfeil (European) carving gouges are very good. Whereas Japanese carving gouges are unusual. Japanese steel is un surpassesd for a cutting edge though!!! Am about to buy a second shape from this range.

I've had this knife for a couple of days. I was looking for a good quality chip-carving style knife with a shorter blade than my Mora 120 - so there's more control over the tip, and not so many breakages as with a scalpel or craft knife. Very pleased when I got it - shave-sharp out of the packing. Relatively wide and shallow Scandi-style grind right down to the edge (over half the width of the blade) which means you can get the whole knife quite close to the wood for shallow cuts, and it should be easy to run across a stone when necessary. There's lots of control, with a blade shape that seems to really suit me. Tried it with basswood, pear, and poplar projects - no problems - and didn't reach for the scalpel once, even for stop cuts. Stropped it a couple of times. Stayed sharp, no signs of weakness yet. It's not a cheap knife, but so so far I think it's good value. Happy.

Les James

I purchased all 5 of these after deliberating on which I should get to start carving. I have to say the quality is exceptional as you would expect. they are extremely sharp and remain so requiring only a strop every now and again. I looked at Pfeil, Flexcut, Stubai, Ashley Iles . Do yourself a favour buy these you will not be disappointed.

Dan Dales

Incredibly easy to use and fantastically sharp! Even for a newcomer like me it makes carving easy.
