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 with bite into the wood and hold it firm but you can add glue for extra security if you like.
In the new year I will be making left handed versions and also selling them with handles.
