I've recently become familiar with some of Australia's hardwoods through a newfound friend on Instagram who lives in Queensland, Australia. All of the wood I've purchased from him is stunning, and none are more so than this ringed gidgee. As with the other Aussie hardwoods, it is incredibly dense and though the interlocking grain can be a bit tricky, it turns beautifully and takes shellac very well.

As you can see in the photo, the heartwood is a dark reddish brown and the figured grain has beautiful chatoyance.  The density of the wood makes for a handle that feels substantial in hand but not too heavy.

I currently have a limited supply of this stock and am offering these knives as two-piece sets.

Each set includes:

These Honey Brook Marking Knives feature:

  1. A Honey Brook Marking Knife and a Honey Brook Dovetail knife with handles that are individually hand-turned from ringed gidgee, imported directly from Australia. The handles in each set are turned from the same turning blank to ensure uniformity of color and grain pattern to the greatest extent possible;
  2. Custom-made blades from Hock Tools.  The dual bevel blades are expertly crafted from O1 tool steel which takes and holds a superior edge and is exceptionally durable. The Honey Brook Tools and Woodworks maker's mark is laser-etched on the blade for a clean and elegant look.
  3. A beautiful finish that starts with hand-mixed shellac and is completed with Alfie Shine hard wax.

Please note that the set on the photo has sold but is representative of the stock I have remaining. Your set will be made to order!
