Extremely useful tool. I've now used mine to carve out a number of Kuksa's and spoons etc. The curve is fairly tight making this a versatile tool. However, the blade I received was rather impressively endowed with the worst 'wire edge' that I have ever encountered. This is a big enough pain to grind out on a straight blade, but on a crook it takes FOREVER! This isn't standard Mora quality so I'm assuming that this is a fluke; will be interesting to see if this is a commonly encountered problem.

Excellent piece of kit, easy to use, a bit of a knack needed to sharpen it. Still managed to cut myself as well as my carving.

After using it for the past few months, I think I can give it a fair review.

Let's start with the disadvantages first - because of the shape it might be tricky to sharpen.
It's built really well and even after carving a kuksa in ash tree(three days of carving, blisters all over my hands) I couldn't see any movement in the blade or the blade becoming duller than it was when I started). Carved around twenty different spoons, ash, yew, scots pine and oak and I think it's a great knofe for the money. i know that are much more expensive tools out there, but it's up to you what route you wanna go. Some people say it's better to remove the pointy tip, but to be honest I don't see any problems it may cause, as long as you're not doing really deep containers with the 30mm diameter hole.

My first spoon carving knife and I'm happy with it. Needs a bit of a sharpen but mine was free from the flash / dinks everyone's reporting.

The knife comes with a bevelled edge that may appear sharp to beginners, but this quality steel can easily be sharpened to a much finer edge. A finer edge makes the job easier (less tired hands), and produces a better finish.

Not as sharp as I hoped, but with a bit of work the edge can be improved. Mine arrived a bit rusty too but a drop of silicone oil has resolved that. It is a pleasure to work with, best used across the grain or at a slight angle, rather than with the grain. First project was using Ash so perhaps a softer wood might make it easier for project No 2. Can't wait to get started! Shame it doesn't come with a case.

Bought as a present for my brother, who loves carving, bushcraft and outdoor pursuits. He massively appreciated it - really high quality, beautiful, and simple.

Didn't come perfectly shiny and polished, but that's not surprising - it's still practically perfect!

was told that mora was the best quality I ordered two knifes and both had burred edges on them
which cut my hand if I hadn't of been desperate for the knifes I would have sent them back.
low quality workmanship.

Need to carve depressions in wood? look no further!

Pros:
This product has a nice big handle that allows complete control of the blade on your workpiece.
The blade is razor sharp.
Can also be used for taking the bark off sticks/ smoothing dowel with ease.

Cons:
Sharpening is a knightmare, but this is true of all crook knives.

First time I use one of these knives. It takes a while to get used to it and I've already cut myself :) However the review is about the product. I think is excellent, robust, nice grip, the handle fills the hand and seems an old proved shape. The blade comes very sharp and with the right technique does what it says on the tin.
