Svante Djarv Hantverk

Svante Djarv Hantverk is a family business which specialises in making hand-forged wood carving tools.

Drawing from the long Swedish metal-working tradition, they have developed a range of tools over the years that continues to expand in collaboration with experienced wood-crafters.

They make a limited number of about 4000 tools and knives each year.

The range includes carving knives, spoon-carving knives and drawknives as well as adzes, axes and other tools for wood turning, sculpture and all sorts of other woodworking. They even make a special range of tools for children.

All tools and knives are delivered ready to use: sharpened and honed with hand-made handles and shafts. Knife blades supplied without handles, are just ground so will require sharpening and honing.

The best quality always comes standard. Only high quality tool-making steel is used which is heat treated several times and shafts and handles are all hand-made from Swedish hardwood, elm and ash.

We have worked with Svante and Elsa Djarv for over 10 years and WOODSMITH is the largest stockist in the UK.  We personally use many of their tools in our own own work.
