    Just finished and ready to go this might be a whittling set to remember :)
    Inspired by the Scandinavian traditional knives both blades are wearing precious, exhibition grade Karelian birch burl wood combined with thin red, contrasting v fiber liners and finished by a touch of modernism through a matching texture/color burlap micarta bolster. Everything is held together securely by a brass Corby rivet and lanyard tube.
    The handle is nicely polished and buffed and the shiny golden fittings bring a plus of style and look.
    Blades are both made out of O1 high carbon tungsten-vanadium tool steel and are featuring a razor sharp, ultra thin scandi zero grind that will eat wood.
    Two 'brothers' for the same task, fast wood removal or extreme intricate carving - none of them would be an issue.
    In case you want even more a mini chisel is also available separately - same steel, same razor sharp edge, matching materials and a contrasting bolster - just in case you will ever try engraving your wooden spatulas for the trip or a pendant for your wife :D

    The price for the set (the two knives) would be 205 usd.
    The price for the whole set (two knives+chisel) would be 245 usd
    Add 40 usd for a custom double sheath made by my lovely wife out of thick vegetable tanned ox leather and 15 usd if you also wish to 'dress' the chisel in a separate sheath ;)

    All the best, God bless,
    Bogdan

    Thank you very much boys for your kind appreciation - i am very glad you enjoy it as it took quite a lot of work to complete :)
    @MichaelBear - thanks mate - there are times when an edge is useful, yet you cannot or do not want a knife in your pocket; that where the mini chisel comes in handy not only for carving ;)

    The set goes to @mjh - may it serve you well brother!

    All the best, God bless,
    Bogdan

    Beautiful work, stunning set, but it would be more complete if it included a spoon knife as well. :dblthumb:
