Hand Carved Crochet Hooks

I have long wanted to carve a crochet hook and when i was hiking in tasmania with my brother doing the south coastal walk i found sticks of a timber which lent well to it, i think it was a form of "tea tree". These were carved using my Opinel pocket knife which you can buy from this site. Here are two of the hooks, i made four in all, but gave away the better ones as christmas presents on return to melbourne. I used nothing more than a small number 1000 japanese water stone to sharpen the knife while carving.
