Very nice and the endgrain is much easier on the knife blades

I know that its easier to make more than one, but six. You must have very good friends to spend this much time making a gift that they will cherish and show off for many years to come. You must have spent many happy hours making them. Thanks for sharing such a creative idea and great Craftmenship.

Craig,
I think you’ve got the technique on these down pat. Now you need to show the rest of us how it’ done cause I’d sure like to make a few myself.
