Finished these off yesterday.

First proper go a tooling leather with an attempt at 3 tone dye. Didn't turn out too bad.

Hope you like. :)

That set about covers anybody's needs.  Great design on the knives and the leather tooling is top notch.  Thanks

Beautiful work. Where were you able to locate azalea burl? I love the pattern of the wood

Cheers guys :)

I got the Afzelia from Ebay on your side of the pond about 6 years ago. Nice sized block. It was only part seasoned so i've been seasoning it slowly since then. Only cut into it a month or so back.

I have to agree with every word said.  It's nice to have matching pieces, I think. That's a sharp looking trio.
