The end of the third quarter for this year is coming at the end of this month. At that time my boss will be auditing the books to determine the profitability of the knife handle woods segment of the business. Information from this will determine the budget I have to work with for the coming quarter.

As long as I am able to keep more money coming in than I have going out he let's me continue running Burl Source as a division of It's a Burl. The better the sales volume, the more he allows me to spend getting new woods for knife makers and having them stabilized.

To date, sales for this quarter have been good. Each quarter they have increased thanks to you guys. So Thank You. I figured if we had a storewide sale for the last 3 days of the quarter it would increase the numbers enough that I could get an increase in my budget.

25 Natural wood blocks that include Ironwood, Ringed Gidgee & Mulga
235 Stabilized Wood Blocks in burl and figured woods
80 Dyed/Stabilized Blocks in different colors
30 Sets of Natural Wood Scales, most are Desert Ironwood
55 Sets of Stabilized Wood Scales with more being added

Just a quick heads up to you guys.
I am about to start adding some really really nice Koa scales to the webstore that will be included in the sale.
They would be real good on a western style knife.

So far the sale has been going real good. Thank You.
A couple days and lots of good pieces are left.
If you have any questions on anything, feel free to call me 541-592-5071

For the last day of the sale I have increased the discount you will get.
To make the extra discount work with the store software I had to change the end date of the sale until tomorrow.
Now on the remaining pieces the prices are even lower than before.

All of you have made this a really good sale so far.
The extra sale end discount is just an extra in case there was something else you wanted to get.
After the sale I have to start getting things ready for the Boise Knife Show at the end of October.

Thank You Everyone!
