Ian recommended me the vendors (both are also vendors here on KKF). We then discussed what type of wood would fit the knife and what size will be necessary. That piece above is indeed on the larger side, but I just liked the structure & color.
So - I chose the wood, but Ian then ordered it directly from the shop. Had I sourced the wood elsewhere it would have been OK too - I just did not have the need (or means) to do so. It would also have been an unnecessary complication because I am located on different continent than Ian
Woo-hoo! Here we come
Now I just need to sit back and enjoy
Ian - you have made quite a progress. What will come next?
Sounds good. I'll have a cappuccino, "butterbezel" and a "quarktasche" as soon as our cafeteria will be opened at 8'clock. Sadly - it is still just 6:30
