Hi, I have a Mora spoon knife, I have noticed that the hook is quite aggressive compared to others. Would it hurt its function to grind back the point about a half inch maybe more to remove some of the hook thanks Mike

I seem to remember I had the same thought on my first hook knife. First off, the knives are pretty cheap and tweaking tools is cool. It takes away that silly idea that you shouldn’t mess with what’s “right”. That said, I wouldn’t cut off the tighter radius end. If you are anything like I was, you’ll likely learn that having the tighter radius at the end is great for cutting the part of the bowl closer to the handle (when you are holding the spoon bowl – handle facing away from you). If you don’t like it though…carefully grind it away and make sure you don’t heat up the metal enough to mess up the strength.
