In the spoon carving and slöjd world, Jögge Sundqvist’s knives and sheaths are legendary. Anyone who has seen Jögge’s presentations and demonstrations is immediately drawn to his knives, knife boxes, tool handles and other fittings. His slöjd knives usually feature a highly-personalized handle, both in its form and its decoration. In this class, students will learn how to outfit a Moraknife blade with a hand-carved handle, which can then be carved and painted to suit.
For the sheath, birch bark is cut, folded and tied with birch roots.
