Coupe tres tres bien! Attention aux doigts 😛
I have several carving knives but I just did't have a sloyd knife, so I bought this one. The fit and finish are quite good. The handle comes smooth but unfinished so I sealed mine in Danish Oil. Handle has a nice palm swell to it. Blade is High Carbon Steel and comes razor sharp. Get yourself a strop to keep the blade in top condition. Knife is lightweight, but capable of doing a lot of roughing work (shaping). Leather Sheath is top notch too and well stitched. Company also included 2 bandaids which I thought was very thoughtful. Price is very good for what you get, and like all good wood carving knives, the blade is a Scandi grind.
Well made and a great value.

The knife is pretty sharp I’d say. If you pull the knife towards yourself a little bit, you can easily cut through a sheet of paper. However, my blade got a little dull by now and I need to sharpen it.In the pictures you can see two little pieces I carved already, so you can estimate how long and how much I’ve been using the knife for. The owl and the prototype fish are both from one block of wood shown in the picture with the fish. Sadly the owl is already given away, so I can’t show it with the block for reference. The block is also from BeaverCraft. It’s soft basswood, 5x5x15cm (2x2x6 inches). By now the blade is little fuller than before and I can’t cut through paper as easily.IN CONCLUSION:The knife is very good for starters and the price-performance ratio is amazing. Also, the customer support is just impeccable, so nothing to worry about there.If you’re starting out with whittling, I would highly recommend some cut-proof gloves, because they make the work just soo much easier and more pleasant.
Love this knife…. Had to shave a better grip,, it fits like a glove in my hand now…. Outstanding blade…
It was not that sharp when i get it, but after a few slides on the sharpener it works pretty damn good. No need to buy expensives ones for 100 bucks. For me it works fine. (Spoons and kuksas)
I am just starting to get into wood carving and this is a great little knife.
