Detailed Description

Narex Spoon Carving Starter Kit

Spoon carving is limited only by one’s imagination. You can create spoons of utility & beauty, ranging in design from the simple to the sublime.

Spoon carving is an easy craft for beginners to undertake successfully. Once you complete your first carved spoon, you may find that whittling out such a simple yet immensely useful object is just plain relaxing & maybe even a little bit habit forming! You’ll find a world of possibilities for carving your own kitchen spoons and spatulas that can range from unadorned elegance to implements of dazzling detail. Carved spoons can be made from green wood and are perfect projects to utilize branch sized material from the yard & woods.

Starter Set

This spoon carving set includes a 7" long detail whittling knife with a 1/2" wide x 1-1/4" long blade for working the perimeter of your spoon. The knife’s wooden handle is curved to allow for a comfortable paring grip. The 3/4" wide bent gouge with an approximate #5 Swiss pattern sweep is for roughing out the spoon’s bowl. OAL 9". The 11/16" wide blade of the 7" long hook knife is double-sided, allowing easy access for finish paring the bowl’s sides & bottom. A rough cut blank of limewood (linden) is included for your first project. Limewood has been used by European master carvers for centuries. It has straight, fine, uniform grain and is easy to carve. It is very similar to American Basswood, but slightly denser. Though a deciduous wood, limewood carves more easily than other hardwoods. It holds details well & makes a more durable kitchen utensil than softer woods like pine. As you improve your skills, you can advance to carving harder woods.

Carving Kit Contents:

  • Double-edged Hook knife - can be used left- or right-handed
  • 20mm (~3/4") #5 Bent Spoon Gouge
    (Narex calls this a Profile 8 Spoonmaking chisel. It's approximately a #5 sweep.)

  • Limewood Spoon Blank
  • Instructions

If you want to carve more than one spoon, or if you've already used the provided blank, we also offer pre-cut limewood spoon blanks.
