I made this boxed set for the LJ marking knife and awl swap. The wood is spalted maple that I stabilized and turned. The ferrules are copper tubing. The steel for the awl started out in life as a spade bit and the blade of the marking knife is from a piece of O1 tool steel I had laying around. The box is poplar w/ a mahogany lid. I sent it to ShaneA and I hope that he enjoys using them as much as I enjoyed making them. This was a very fun project and knowing that it was going to a fellow LJ I wanted to step up my game a bit. I think that is the real benefit of participating in these swaps. Thanks for looking.
