    Hi Richard, it's good to see that you got your knife and like the wood you chose. It really is a special look and feel in person isn't it? Ancient kauri is becoming one of my favorites to work with. I'm thrilled that you like it and I hope that you get lots of use from your new knife - enjoy.

    I LOVE my Kauri from Dave, I use them everyday and they get more and more attractive to me, not to mention the knives CUT!

    Thanks Dave

    I like that you included the undyed piece, looks nice. A little more purple-ish than I remember the wood, but maybe that's just the light.

    The idea of using the un-dyed section was the customers. The handle finished near purple in real life so the colors are pretty close to what I see in person. You never know what you'll get until the end, huh?

    I'm a huge fan of mixing sapwood with heartwood, or in this case dyed with undyed. It would not have been the same without that contrast. Your customer has good taste, and you as well for creating it
