Introduction
Jon Mac... Spoon carving first steps... I am a folk artist/bushcrafter and spoon maker living on Dartmoor in the West Country. I am a retired member of the Mountain Rescue Committee's Search and Rescue Team 'Ashburton'.  I carve spoons using three primary bushcraft tools. The Axe, Knife and hook knife. I sell my work and teach edge tool usage and maintenance. The home of the MaChris bushcraft/carving knife and the MiniMac carving knife. This new pair of knives offers superb handle ergonomics combined with superior cutting capabilities.
