After many years forging my own tools I have finally made a batch of these hooks for sale. The are made from an excellent high alloy steel, very hard and tough so they hold an edge for a long time. They come razor sharp and ready to use. I carve a handle out of any dry hardwood scrap I have to hand, drill an 8mm hole then hold the blade in a pair of mole grips tap it gently into the hole. The corners of the tang will bite into the wood and hold it firm but you can add glue for extra security if you like.
New ones are finally back in stock, I have final honing to do so will be posting out from Wed 23rd April 14
I have left and right handers this time, if you want a left hander or some of each make a note in the comments box on the order form. Next week I shall also have a more open symmetrical knife blade which is good for finishing cuts, this style is a great all rounder.
In the near future I will be also selling them with handles.
