Small sloyd finishing knife – 60mm


By accepting the terms and conditions you are confirming that you are over 18 years old and will supply photo id on request.

A small sloyd blade shaped and sharpened by myself using the Hewn and Hone small knife jig. It is available with an elm handle and slip sheath or as bare blade for you to handle yourself. The tang is 1/4 inch round bar perfectly fits into a 6.5mm hole and is secured with epoxy resin glue.


Made from bearing steel, forged and heat treated by Nic Westermann. I use a Sorby ProEdge to refine the shape, establish the bevels and hone to a scary sharp edge. The bevels are symmetrical and flat with an edge angle is 28 degrees to give a narrow bevel and good edge retention. The blade is around 60mm long, they are hand forged so there’s a little variation. The blade has a distal taper, it is thinner towards the tip. This makes the bevel narrower at the tip to permit a tight concave surface to be carved without chatter. These are intended to be used for finishing cuts, kept super sharp and nick free so you can get a perfect knife finish on your work.

Please note the tip is very fine and not to be used for prying or drilling as it will likely bend or break.

Some of the images on this page show the finishing knife along side the smaller 40mm version and a Mora 106, this for you to get a clear idea of the comparative size of the blades.
