Jamie Sharp's wood carving knives and adze are a favorite of many native American west coast carvers who use them daily like Peter Gong, a native west coast artist of 13 years whose extensive collection of knives is over half from Jamie Sharp. Buy one today and find out why!
North West Coast Style Crooked Carving Knives
My knives are generally in the style that North West Coast Natives invented. These are mostly double sided single bevel knives although we offer a wide range of single sided double bevel straight knifes as well.
Many of the knives are crooked wood carving knives. This means they are curved along the cutting edge.
NW Coast style crooked wood carving knives are amazingly versatile and a few crooked carving knives can replace dozens of gouges and chisels. They let you get into spaces no other wood carving tool will and are sharp enough to slice the wood grain cleaner than most other worth carving tools, producing a finish that is smooth enough to skip sanding.
Many artists have switched to these crooked style knives after being amazed at how easy and versatile they are to use.

The sharpest wood carving knives
All my wood carving knives are sharpened to 2000 grit or higher with diamond abrasives, generally to a 15 degree primary bevel with no secondary bevel, with Adze ground to 20 degrees primary bevel. This makes Jamie Sharp carving knives and adze sharper then most wood carving knives and adze sold on the market and suitable for soft woods like cedar as is without any further sharpening. For harder woods a secondary bevel can be easily added in a few minutes with a sharpening stone.
My wood carving knives are made from high carbon steel with 2% nickel for extra toughness and to provide corrosion resistance. To properly care for Jamie Sharp wood carving knives, occasionally wipe them with mineral oil and they will last for generations.
The handles on my wood carving knives are micro textured and ever so slightly faceted for improved grip.
Every aspect of these knives has been optimized based on feedback from talented artists to produce the best knife possible.
