Sorry I can't help you out, I've nothing like that at all.

 What knife might they be for, something tastey? :)

 You know my allox farmers sa knife- it got it's first war wound today, just broddling some holes in  softwood sofa frame , the broddle bent. Straightened it out easy enough but it's left a crinkle.  Just saying..

What size do you need as they do pen blanks (5/8 by 5/8 by 5 inch)

It's for a blade I had made off a guy in Poland large hunting knife. Need to get the bits together before winter for a little project it's around 5 inch by 2 inch on the handle  ;D
That's a bummer mate about the farmer  :-[ I use mine every single day

Can't wait to see it when it's done. :D.

 Yes I use mine all the time for work and garden, I can't really complain that it got bent, I don't think it was designed for such heavy abuse as it sometimes gets  :).

Hmmmm, I've got a suitable bit of walnut, but it's a bit bland and uninspiring, as it doesn't have much (read any) figuring to it.

You're welcome to it if you want though Dave?
