We hadn't seen our friends in about two years and it was great to catch up. We took them a little gift of some hand carved kitchen ware.
I've just packed this next bowl up ready to send to my friend Simon Hill. Simon is an excellent green woodworker. He also runs courses and supplies some great tools from makers like Gransfors, Svante Djarv and Hans Karlsson. Check out his blog and his tool shop.
In exchange for the bowl Simon sent me this lovely little engraving knife by Magnus Sundelin. You can buy the knives from his shop. I look forward to giving it a try and I'll no doubt put a review on here.
