Hans Karlsson Carving Knife

4/5 1 review

Carving knives with birch bark sheaths from Swedish tool masters Hans Karlsson.

Two blade lengths available:

  • 50mm (2")
  • 75mm (3")

SELECT FROM THE 'SIZE' DROP-DOWN BOX BELOW

Knives ideally suited to carving spoons, butter paddles and coat hooks.

The blade is forged from a bar of SS 2258 ball bearing steel

Slightly hollow ground (concave) bevels are approx 24 degrees, providing excellent control and easy sharpening / honing.

The 50mm (2") long blade is 16mm deep and 2.5mm thick.  Total length approx 165mm (6 1/2"). It has a distal taper

The 75mm (3") long blade is 20mm deep and 2.5mm thick. Total length approx 180mm (7"). It has a distal taper

Beautiful lightly oiled handle in either Swedish ash or elm, slightly rectangular rather than oval in section and nicely rounded off for good grip. Fits in the hand really well.

Comes with a 2mm thick, protective birch bark blade sheath, made by a local craftsman near to the Karlsson workshop.

Very rigid solid knife that is a joy to use.

Comes sharp and ready to use out of the box!

  • Good slöjd

    If possible I'd give this half a star more.

    Personally I can say this blade sports an extremely aggressive bite, a top notch heat treatment and, thanks to the narrowing spine, a combination of mass for power cuts and nimbleness for neat tip works, including engraving.
    The handle is comfortable and generally agile. I felt it only a bit "stiff" when using the thumb as fulcrum against the work piece and pulling the knife closing the fingers. I'm used to Finnish puukkos teardrop section handles that tend to always feel more lively, so it can be just me.

    The birch bark blade cover is practical and has an excellent retention.
