This video is a review of the Mora spoon knife. More specifically, it is the “Mora Eric Frost 164 Woodcarving Hook Knife”.

I have mixed feelings about this knife. Out of the box it was not as sharp as I like. The blade was also a bit corroded and needed to be polished. My gut tells me that it may have been on a shelf for quite some time though as others I have seen with this knife have had little complaints.
I purchased this knife because I have had a growing interest in bowl and spoon carving. After sharpening it, I have been able to complete a spoon in hard maple, and have now grown to love this thing. Having a curved blade makes sharpening a bit more of a challenge, but once you do sharpen it, it holds the edge fairly decently.
The blade is carbon steel and is a bit over 2 inches in overall length. It has a single chisel bevel and would particularly be best suited for a right-handed individual if you ask me.
The handle is made of a nice birch and fits very well in the palm of my hand.
Overall I would suggest this knife to folks interested in getting into spoon or bowl carving. For the price, you really can’t beat it and there aren’t many manufacturers of spoon knives anyways 🙂
