I made around a half dozen of these for presents; some with handles others just from walnut. The original shape was the drawer cut out from my walnut bandsaw box.
The scrap from the bandsaw box was sliced into “knife blanks” and the rest of the shaping was on a belt sander.
They turned out much better than the blurry pictures show.

These are beautiful tools and are nicely done and very graceful.
