I bought these cheese knive sets down at the sydney timber and working with wood show about 1 month ago and my mum chose out the timber.
The handles are padauk.

I know there not both quite the same but mum can’t tell :P
I didn’t have any trouble with the dust, does anybody else?

finished with EEE Ultra Shine and Shellawax

thanks for looking
comments and critiques welcome

Young Broda, nice work, you will be a force to watch in the future. Sweet finish. I didn’t realise that padauk is available here,, is it availabe in large sections or only for turning,
Btw how did you go with the Purple heart from Agora Timbers?

Well done again.

thanks larry.
about the padauk, I got mine from the show (from trend timbers) but I only bought it in a small “stick” (about 50×50x150) so i’m not sure where else you would get it sorry.

BTW thanks for the info on the purple heart, my brother is coming down from morningside next week so I might be able to get him to pick me some up. do they deal in turning blanks?

Really Nice!!

Were the tangs on the handles round or flat?

Beautiful knives, but why limit them to cheese. You could gut a roo with either one.
