Ash handled Lauri Leuku blade.


My trusty old Leuku gave me the extra reach needed to cut this cluster of Oyster mushrooms from the trunk of a tall Beech tree. As a ‘jack of all trades’ the Leuku is very hard to beat.

Beech bowl with Walnuts.

This was the first bowl I made around eight years ago with windfall Beech from Ashdown Forest.  It is still my favourite vessel for soups and stews and always takes me back to the memory of carving it by the camp fire among great friends.
