Someone got in trouble for cutting on her mother’s wooden cheese board with a steel blade and commissioned a wooden knife :p The blade is rimu, the handle rata (both endemic NZ timbers, recycled), and the ‘rivets’ are kauri gum. Hopefully the postie opens soon so I can get it to its new owners :)

Beautiful job on that knife, Lynne. I’ve heard Rimu is getting hard to find now that it is protected.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks everyone :)

Jim – yes, rimu can now be bought only from registered sellers. My materials are all recycled, however, with most of it coming from the building waste stream. For example, mates of mine recently sent me some beautiful heart rimu from renovations done on their house.
