Bloodwood Crochet Hook


The Hooks:

These beautiful hooks are handcrafted by artist Scott Foster.  Turned on a lathe; cut with a sloyd knife, hand sanded and finished.  Hooks are made to order. 

The Wood:

Found in Tropical South America Bloodwood has a red heartwood, as it ages it turns a darker brown/red. 

Used in everything from carvings to furniture, bloodwood is strong but it is a challenge to work.    Very dense and brittle the wood can splinter when being carved or turned on a lathe.  Super sharp tools fix the problem.

If you are purchasing a couple of hooks, the Bloodwood has a nice contrast with the darker woods like Gabon Ebony or a lighter wood like American Holly
