Thank you Rod, for your Kind words.
It is a nice thought, that something you have made could be handed down the Generations, possibly to those who are not yet Born, and who you are never known, but who's Gene's you share.
Regards,
Brian.

Just kidding, of course. That is truly a treasure, especially for someone who has a passion for cooking. GMH will be quite happy, I am sure. Nice selection and very nice work Brian.
When viewing with the provided magnification, the quality of your fine finish detail is quite evident!
Aloha!
Many Thanks Steve, for your Kind Words.
The Magnification Function is a Fantastic Tool, it show's every Minute Hair and Defect, not visible to the naked eye, there is No Hiding, that makes it Great, yet also Horrific.
I strongly doubt that I would ever tackle another set, I don't know if I would have enough time, so many Projects on my Plate, and so much wood to turn, and the Sand is getting noticeably Lower in my Glass.
Kind regards,
Brian.

Beautiful set of knives Brain! That's a family heirloom that will be passed on for generations. I remember the first knife I made two years ago. I blissfully sanded and shaped the handle and a few days later developed a rash that lasted two months. Needless to say I now take great care whenever I work with cocobolo. I've found that Gloves In A Bottle shielding lotion works well to protect my hands and arms from the effects of sawdust.

Brian, you never cease to amaze me with your varied skills! Fantastic job of finishing off the blades and with the stand. The fit and finish of the handles is perfect. I don't know if you get to watch "Forged in Fire" Down Under, but maybe you should try to get on the show

Stay well, my friend!

Well done, Brian. Handles look to be well balanced and the knife block has the look of a disciplined professional. I'm inspired to try one myself.

I think there is a slight possibility that your son just may like those Brian. Great work as usual Brian.

Gentlemen namely, Steve Axelrod, John (Elkhorn), Mike L, Jim V, & Rick G.

Firstly, My sincerest apology for not having responded to your kind Posts and Generous Comments previously. I have no excuse, whilst the last 18 months or so have been extremely taxing culminating in a Mini Stroke in February 2018, and then a slow return of my ability to recall, words, and events, from my memory, I should have responded earlier.

While looking at the Posts I had Started, I saw that Rick G. was the last comment on my Knife Block, and when I looked further, I noted that I hadn't acknowledged or responded to all your Generous Posts.
Please forgive me for my untimely responses and acknowledgements, that oversight was just Poor Manners on my part.
Again my Apology.
Kindest regards,
Brian.

Great work as usual Brian! Those are beautiful set of knives with beautiful fit and finish. They are a set that any cook would love to have. I know that they will mean a lot to him and every time he uses them he will remember your thoughtfulness and love. They will become a treasured family heirloom. Well done, my friend!
