I've had these on the 'to do' list for some time and at last got round to making them.
The handle is made from Bocote or Mexican Rosewood. Although not a true rosewood the colours are wonderful and they hold up nicely over time.
The handles are fairly traditional in shape and very comfortable to hold and use. The blades are Japanese HSS hardened to RC 68 and they extend nearly to the end of the handle.
I may not make these again due to time pressure, so it's first come first served, cost £28.
