What our customers say about Jamie Sharp
I found your blades easier to maintain than the really hard Hall Farrier's crooked hoof knives. Yours are just slightly softer than that but not mushy like Diamond or Mora.
- Brian T
I really like the tools I’ve gotten from Jamie as they stay sharp for a long time and even if I drop them or bang them it doesn’t take that long to fix! And I tell everyone who asks me about knives to see your website
- Cole Speck
My wood carving knives are mostly double sided single bevel straight and hook knives. The hook knife (otherwise known as a crooked knife, bent knife, spoon carving knife or bowl carving knife) excel at carving concave details and the double edge saves time by allowing you to follow the grain without rotating the work around.
I also make double edged straight wood carving knives that work wonderful for flattening, plain carving, whittling, etc with the flush mount on the bottom of the handle at a slight angle allowing you to easily get exceptionally close to the work like no other knife can.
The NW Coast style hook knife is amazingly versatile and a few straight and hook knives can replace dozens of gouges, chisels and other wood carving tools. The hook knife will let you get into spaces no other wood carving tool will and are designed for a slicing motion to sever the wood grain cleaner than most other wood carving tools, producing a finish that is smooth enough to skip sanding.
Many artists such as yourself have already switched to using a northwest coast hook knife after being amazed at how quickly it removes wood while still leaving a wonderful smooth finish.

Featured Wood Carving Knives
The sharpest wood carving knives
All my wood carving tools come to you sharpened to 2000 grit with diamond abrasives.
Hook Knife bevels are generally 15 degree primary bevel with no secondary bevel and Adze are ground to 20 degrees. This makes Jamie Sharp carving knives suitable for both soft woods like cedar and harder woods like basswood, aspen and butternut as is without any further sharpening.
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 your Jamie Sharp straight or hook knife, occasionally wipe it with mineral oil and it 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 wood carving knives have been optimized based on feedback from talented artists to produce the best knife for carving wood possible.
