Box to hold a Japanese knife. I used some leftover scraps for this: lid and bottom are acacia, sides are oak, insert is made of padouk. Miter joints are strengthened with wedge splines. Carved initials on the lid are inlaid using synthetic opal fragments set in UV-curing epoxy. Lid is secured using two small magnets set in the rim on each side

Unfortunately not, making knives (at least the blade) is beyond my capabilities I’m afraid. It’s a Myabi gyutoh 6000 MCT knife.

Nice way to complete the package, knife and box!

I bet that insert took some time and talent to get a good fit. Fine job Bernard 8^)

Interesting that you used UV cure epoxy. How long does it take to set up once exposed?

Using a LED UV lamp (like those they use for curing nail polish in beauty shops): between 10 to 30 seconds, depending on distance from the lamp and thickness of epoxy layer

That knife deserves a beautiful resting place, and you’ve provided that.
