My daughter is showing real interested in cooking so I got her some decent knives. To subtly remind her take them seriously, I made a box with her name. Since they are Japanese steel, I found the Japanese version of her name; nintai – Patience.

The box is mahogany with a polycarbonate cover (more scratch resistant than acrylic). The knives I bought and cut a simple foam insert to hold them separate. It took three times to get the slots right. I still need to find my technique for my combo plows…

Nice work.

I make lots of slide top lexan boxes. Yours is very nice.

Beautiful box, really like you took the time to find the name in Japanese.

Very nice. I note my favourite Japanese is a Nakiri which is great for vegetables and fine work and I keep a leather strop with them, and strop very frequently.

Goes without saying. We are going to start with a steele, though, no stones.
