Steak Knife Caddy - First time post

Hello all. Been following the site for a while but I think it’s time to finally show something is designed.
My wife got me a beautiful steak knife set for Christmas and it seemed like a perfect opportunity to use the forge.

Materials:
Shop made maple blanks and walnut blanks around 1/8” thick.
3/16” brass rod from home store
Lots of sanding of lasered edges to get maximum effect of the two woods
Watco Danish oil finish

Traced a knife profile on paper then scanned and made svg of the profile in illustrator. Happy to get into more detail if anyone’s interested

I love beautiful, useful items like this. Looking forward to your next posts.

Fantastic. Love it.

It really came out amazing! The layered wood really shouldn’t be hidden in a drawer–it’s a work of art.
