Somebody is gonna win big in this years egghead exchange. Well, if they like knives with their sauces and rubs.

    Nice work.  Do you make your own sheaths as well?

    Nice Job! That fixed blade is awesome!

    Not yet. Gotta learn leatherwork now too. I'm getting a big pile of knives with no sheaths so that's gotta happen soon.

    Beautiful tools!
    The ax handle looks like blackened (Cajun?  =) ) hickory; what kind of wood did you use for the knife handle?  
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    The axe is ash that was just charred at the mouth of the forge and sanded down a bit. 

    The knife and cleaver are red Palm. Weird stuff to work with since it's not really wood like we think of wood.

    Somebody did win big this year in the rub and sauce exchange, and it was me! I figured I needed to put a few photos of your latest creation in here with the rest of your collection. Thanks again!

    @ChillyWillis enjoy. Not dishwasher safe. I think I gave you a responsibility more than a gift.  It will patina. Cut a lemon and wait 5 mins :)
    But I like to include something handmade if I can. Man, next year who knows... :)
