Beavercraft C17P Universal Detail Pro Knife Review

Are you looking for a knife that can do more than one task and still deliver quality? The Beavercraft C17P – Universal Detail Pro Knife (Palm Handle) is a great fit for anyone looking to do good quality wood carving. 

You can also use the same tool to create fine details in a finished product. It is a small and compact knife with a highly functional blade and easy to use handle. 

The cutting edge on the knife is rounded and very sharp, ready to slice through and shave off just about any wood. The design of the blade also allows you to get to most hard to reach places, because of its dimensions. 

The blade is very fine and manageable. You will find that you can easily manipulate it. The handle is shaped in a way that it sits comfortably in your palm, hence why it is called a palm handle knife.  


This knife looks quite short and compact. That is because it is. The blade and the handle are almost the same lengths, and so when you look at it, it could almost look like they are the same length.

The handle has a ball-like shape which makes it fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. The blade has one straight edge and another with a rounded edge, which is the cutting edge. The thin tip, lets you get into tight spaces. 


This knife weighs a total of 165mm. 65mm of these belong to the handle, whilst the blade measures 40mm. The width of the blade is 12mm.


The handle is made of ashwood and is covered with linseed oil to give it a smooth feel in the hand. It also smoothes out the wood to avoid any splinters from the raw wood. The size of the knife also makes it easy to control and work with as it fits snug in the palm of your hand.


This is a highly durable knife. The handle is made of ashwood which is synonymous with durability. The blade is made of highly durable carbon steel. You can cut into any wood thanks to the superior quality of the Beavercraft C17P – Universal Detail Pro Knife (Palm Handle).


This is a very affordable knife, especially considering that you can do more than one task with it. From initial carving to final shaping.

Our Verdict

We like the Beavercraft C17P – Universal Detail Pro Knife (Palm Handle) because of its versatility. It can be used by both left and right-handed users. It is also very durable and comfortable to use. 

The specific shape of the handle helps keep your hand at ease and hence keeps it carving for longer. The other reason why we think this is a good buy is that you can do the general cutting as well as fine detail cutting, all with the same knife! The sharp precision and accuracy that you get with this super sharp blade, will make your job much simpler and more effective. Happy shopping!
