Knives & Forks

People get quite excited about making spoons - I like making knives and forks too...

Here's a selection of pasta and pickle forks, Swedish butter and paper knives that I've made to bulk up the stock for a show we're doing this Bank Holiday Weekend at Hainault Forest Country Park.



With money being tight at the moment it's good to have some low price items for children to buy. We've developed a big range of things for a fiver or less.

Good stock Robin. Good luck at the show.

Humour me - what wood are they all carved from? Mostly sycamore, two walnut and a solitary birch?? What is the top, very striped dark wood knife?

There's no Walnut. The 3 dark ones are in Sumach.

Please could you tell me where you bought the coloured 'lead' core for the pencils. The young people I work with always want to make pencils when we are doing whittling/woodcraft but I struggle to find the graphite or colour for the core. Thanks
