This rug hooking hook was designed for a left handed person. There is a thumb groove for comfort. A right handed person could use this hook but they would have to place the index finger in the groove. This hook style is also closer to a pencil style of hook. Some people prefer holding a shape without a ball resting the the palm of the hand.
Shaft width is Primitive (larger than the course width and two times larger than the medium) ideal for large hand cut strips of wool.
