Just finished my paring knife to complete the set. The Damascus blade is from Woodcraft (Item #153655) and so are the African Blackwood scales (Item #153762). The knife blade includes aluminum cutlery rivet. However, to keep the theme consistant, I used pins from Jantz knife making supplies.
The scales are sanded thru 5000 grit and polished with Hut PPP Brown.
Thanks for looking!

Hmmm, I think that MY kitchen would make more use of these . . . Guess we could arm wrestle for them! Very nice set!

Lew: A fantastic set of knives. We may have to get you to give a knife workshop.

You can drop a set off at my house also.

Keep it up Lew.

Now you have your own set, right? What´s next…? Own car, own bed…?
For the time being, I just have my own comb & toothbrush
