My burl showed up this afternoon so here’s a quick snap to give a general view of what’s available right now. These are meant for the kitchen knives but I will probably have at least one spare set for something else.
There are two sets of the green and black/gold and one set of the reddish brown. These are professionally stabilized pieces of wood that will hold up to use in the kitchen. I wouldn’t run them through the dishwasher but that’s more to avoid getting bashed around, the same reasons apply to throwing them in a drawer with a bunch of other hard and sharp objects. Knife blocks or other individual storage methods are the appropriate way to house good knives.
