    This band knife, used as a beater on our popular band loom, is a dream to use. Our customers have requested this tool for years and now the request has been granted.

    handle: 5"
    blade: 4.25"
    overall: 9.25"

    Our Vävstuga band knife and reed hook are created by Lamson & Goodnow, which began as a scythe manufacturer in 1834 in Shelburne Falls, MA. Today, Vävstuga's neighbor produces world-class cutlery in buildings dating from 1850. They have made a few changes over the years by adding hi-tech lasers, robots and grinding equipment to assist their skilled craftsmen.

    The tools Lamson & Goodnow have manufactured for us have resin-impregnated wood handles, which are attached to the spring steel blade with cutler's rivets. The handle has a convenient hole for attaching a lanyard. Each tool has been beautifully etched with the Vävstuga logo.

    See our Band Weaving page for more inspiration and resources: books, mini-movies, and project ideas.
