My contribution to the swap. I used purpleheart and brass that was laying around. The knife blade was made from an old jointer knife.

These are classic! And the square was my first thought. Of course my second thought was – How the Heck I’m I going to get it Square…. They are beautiful. Well done!

Classic, sleek and solid. Those are some fine looking layout tools. Sounds like Rich has already been putting them to good use.

Super useful too… The knife was even used to finish up another item for this swap since George sent them out early enough and I waited till last minute to ship!
