    I didn't even recognize the wee beasties!

    Thanks guys for your hard (and ocd driven) work.

    If I can ever figure out how to work my camera & upload pics, I'll have to post a Stefan/Dave collaborative effort gallery!

    Dave/Stefan,

    I received the knives and couldn't be happier - they look even better in person. Great job guys! They are so nice that I almost hate to use them but knives are made to be used and use them I shall.

    Thanks much -
    Nolan

    Looks like the size worked out well on this one. I hope Rio will like it...

I had originally hoped for more contrast between the mallee and the koa, but it turned out that the mallee had some sapwood that I had not noticed while it was still covered with resin. But I thought it felt really nice in the hand.

    The handle feels great and even though the woods are similar they go well together. I would have never guessed the main piece to be koa but then again I'm no wood expert.

    That's what I love about koa, it comes in so many different shades and patterns. I thought this more rustic piece here might go well with the knife, especially once it has started some patina. O.k., I am off to the shop now or it will get too late...
