This is a couple of detail carving knives I made from Maple and Padauk….just a couple more for the collection.
Thanks for viewing.

I watched a guy on the DIY channel woodcarving show make one from a nice piece of wood, epoxy, and an old straight razor…a great tool from simple parts…but you’ve added a few decorations that spice them up considerably…well done.

Wow – it would almost be a sin to put such beautiful tools to work. The contrasting woods really bring it together.
