I had two off-cuts from a glue-up that I made for a decorative cutting board that I am working on.
And I needed a gift for the Yankee-Swap at X-Mas party, so I thought I would put these end cuts to use.
Made from Holly, Cherry, Purpleheart, & Rosewood.
Finished with Cutting Board Conditioner.

The knife is strung with .018” Dia. Stainless Steel fishing line leader.
You can slip the wire of the knife over the handle of the board and hang both together
from hole when not in use.

Thanks for looking.
