Knocked out this little project last night. I had some cut-off scrap from the cutting board I posted yesterday left over and thought it would make for good handle material for a small knife. stopped by woodcraft and they had their knife kits on sale for $10. So for $10 and some leftover scrap glue-up I figured i couldn’t go wrong.

And now i have a little set for the kitchen. Tried to sale it to the wife as a “cheese set”, small board, small knife…it works! She thought it was a pretty intense little cheese knife, but hey, all the cheese connoisseurs are using mini-skinners now-a-days, right?!

I think this will complete my maple and walnut series for a while, time to move to a new variety….

Very cool knife, that is a great looking skinner. Nice job on the cutting block. 2 of my favorite woods.

I like it….built the same knife for my father-in-law for his birthday last year. It really turned out to be a fun project.
