    The knife is a hook knife, great for carving out scoops and the bowl of a spoon. I read much about the use of these knives, and how to carve the Swedish Slojd method, it takes some getting used too, but the methods are very efficient and accurate. This hook knife is made by Morakniv, a tradition in Sweden, and the cost of the knives are very affordable. Here is a link to a series of videos by Morakniv and legend Jogge Sundqvuist on use and maintenance. The whole series can be found here at Swedish Knife Grip Lessons with Jogge Sundqvuist

    My spoon is roughed out as far as I can go, now I will wrap it in cloth and let it slowly dry for a couple weeks, then refine the lines and facets.

    I am attempting another spoon carving, I trimmed a Chinaberry tree a couple weeks ago and the long straight branches are ideal for green woodworking. I took my hatchet and roughed the blank out, then started shaping.
  8. I love this book, I ordered it from Tools For Working Wood and it's also available on Amazon. The book is a hard cover and full of great illustrations and images. The author Jogge Sundqvist walks you through what is needed to carve bowls, wooden ware and many other useful items for the home and garden. The principal of Slojd is to create self sufficiency in work, from making your own tools, to cutting down a tree or parts of a tree, and processing the wood by hand to bring it to the point of working it into something useful. I have become as of late very interested in wood carving, green woodworking and other bodger type work. I will someday build a pole lathe as well. Jogge walks you through the processes from which tools to purchase for carving, how to keep them sharp, and how to use the special Swedish knife grips that look very intimidating at first, but once you study how ingenious the grips are, and the natural safety stops in place to prevent from cutting oneself, it all makes sense and I cannot wait to get a hold of some green tree limbs and start splitting and working the wood with hatchet and knives. I give this book a big thumbs up. Enjoy!
  9. I love this book. I picked it up on Amazon awhile back and finally got a chance to read through it and view the different holding techniques for the method of Slojd carving. I have been interested now for sometime in carving by Slojd, I have delved into the world of Jogge Sundqvist who is the son of the author of this book, Wille Sundqvist. And now I have Wille Sundqvist seniors book in my hands and I can't wait to set knife to wood. This book is a paper back, and the publication of this specific version is 1990, and has been updated through 2013 I believe. Though this book is considered by many to be the big Kahuna of Slojd carving books, as some may say Wille Sundqvist was pretty much the final word on this subject. Wille first carved as a boy in his grandparents kitchen. Slojd has a deep tradition and roots in Sweden, the essence of Slojd is the ability to be self sufficient and make things you need to use, practically, such as utensils, bowls and much more. Slojd also teaches to use the forest wisely. This book goes through all the tried and proven Slojd knife holds, the grips, the actions, the proper way to pin arms at your side as you carve, and yes, there are many images of using a knife and cutting towards your body, but not too worry, Slojd tradition has worked out the kinks over time, and the incredibly powerful knife holds you learn actually have stops built into the carving actions, so that the knife stays and cuts where it is supposed too. In this book Wille goes through in depth the sharpening of curved hook knives, straight knives, and hatchets, there is also much dedication to the use of hatchets in roughing out your project, and even fine shaving your work. There is a companion video available for this book somewhere, I have not looked for it yet, but I think it would be a wonderful addition to an already great book. If you are interested in carving the Swedish/Slojd way, I highly recommend this book. Cheers!
