Corvus Blades

My name is Ashley Eaglestone. I have always had a fascination in knives their shapes, uses and the endless various materials you can use to make them . By trade, I am a Carpenter Joiner, I am also a qualified Woodturner.

I spent my last wood working days working for prestige Cabinet Makers where I learnt to use other various materials such as leathers and metals, mostly brass.About eight years ago I was watching Ray Mears when he visited Julius Pettersson in his Swedish Blacksmith workshop, this episode inspired my interest in outdoor and bushcraft knives and I made my first woodlore knife from scratch.

Since then I have been making knives as a hobby and mostly giving them away as gifts to friends and family.

Turning Hare Woodcraft

Bob and Steve at Turning Hare Woodcraft in North Cornwall run green woodworking introduction courses for one and two days. They show students how to make their own spoons and stools and in 2019 will also be offering pole lathe courses. They set up Turning Hare so they could spend more time away from their wives and in man-sheds when Steve moved in next door and they got chatting about woodworking! Steve has been a woodwork teacher for almost 20 years and Bob is a skilled enthusiast.
