That looks REALLY GOOD! I have just ordered a set of kitchen knives to make for my wife, now I will probably feel too inadequate to post my knives, LOL. That looks awesome.

Thanks you very much for the feedback.With these knives I solved ‘The Gift Problem’ this New Year.I buy ready-made blades. The handle making was quite easy and enjoyable affair. Decorative rings are also
easy to make.The first knife handle is not regular octagon, but rather resembles a coffin. It was VERY convenient for kitchen work, when you do not need a lot of effort.

Care to share your sources for blades and ivory?

BigTiny:‘Care to share your sources for blades and ivory?’—————————————————————————————————I have no one source for blades but lately I like in the knifemaking.comMammoth ivory is not a problem in Russia – in north-east you can find it at 20-100 USD/lb.

Thanks for the knife lead. I’ll have to check them out.Being in Canada, mammoth ivory is a bit scarcer than in mother Russia. I’d like to get a few pieces some time for some scottish blades; a dirk and a skean dhu (the little knife we highlanders carry in our sock).

BigTiny:‘I’d like to get a few pieces…’—————————————————————I can send you mammoth bark ivory (if it not be on the customs ban list in Russia).
