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

Beautiful set!

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

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.
