I dont have to tell you how RARE this stuff is, And I would noot even be selling if I didnt need Christmas cash! :) If they dont sell B4 Christmas there going back into my stash till I make a knife with em! :)

I just listed 5 more sets of KILLER Cocobolo burl on Knife Dogs. I find it a better format because I can modify the post as stuff sells.

Please feel free to take a look at whats there, heres a sneak peek, I know some of you said you really liked a couple of these when I posted em in the WOOD thread in shop talk! :)

Merry Christmas!!

That would be GREAT Thanks Johnny. Ill just add them to this thread! :) Rather then starting a new one!

Cocobolo burl!!! I dont have to tell you how RARE this stuff is! I found a source and purchased as much as I possibly could this year. Its time to sort through and sell of some to re coop a little cash to buy some Christmas gifts and more Ironwood burl!!

Yea, Im a wood junky.. It should be in my title on this forum, Resident Burl Junky and knife maker.. lolol

I love beautiful woods and spend countless hours looking through 100s of web site to get my fix.. Now that would be OK if I just looked.. But I tend to BUY the woods when I find something rare or extra beautiful!

I almost HATE to sell these. But If I have to sell them. I would be happier knowing there oing to a fellow Knife Dog then just some random person. Take advantage of these because there probably the last ones I will ever post for sale! And after Christmas. If they have not sold, There going back into my stash!

All prices include shipping to USA. If you want a set shipped elsewhere please contact me for shipping quote

Set 1 Is a Spalted 3 color set thats got Rays and crazy figure on the amazing figure!! There also very large. measuring 7 1/2 X 1 3/4 X 3/8+" there is a small area that will need to be filled either with CA glue or epoxy.. A finer set of cocobolo you will not find!

Stabilized maple burl knife blocks.
Hey guys I have XL maple burl knife blocks, These things are beautiful and fully stabilized.
These came from what I call a smooth burl, and the curl and rays in this wood are super tight and fine, reminds me of some of the Koa wood from Hawaii. As with most woods there may be areas that will need filling and or worked around. The pics really dont capture the curl and figure in the wood as much as I would of liked. But its one of them things thats hard to show in a photo.

These blocks are LARGE and you could easily cut them into 2 sets of scales or 2 knife blocks.
I accept PayPal. and ship USPS.

Please post what block you would like or Ill take em for the 3fer deal and Ill contact you with payment info.

If you take them all. The price break will be great.. Total for all 3 blocks 125.00 delivered. SOLD

Block #1 is 5 1/8 X 2 1/4 tapering to 2 1/2 X 1 3/8" $50.00 delivered SOLD

http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3038&d=1324149418


Block #2 is 5 1/2 X 2 1/4 X 1 3/8" $50.00 delivered SOLD

http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3039&d=1324149427


Block 3 has a couple of worm holes that will need to be filled. But is exceptionally figured. Its 5 1/4 X 2 3/8 X 1 3/8" $40.00 Delivered. SOLD

http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3040&d=1324149437


Adding one more slice to sweeten the pot for you guys!! if you buy all 3 pieces this one is FREE!!! yep, the best slice of the bunch. This is the same wood as the blocks, Just think of the KILLER set of matching knives you can make with these! I have seen alot of beautiful maple, But never seen it with this type of curl, Its really like Koa! just beautiful!!!
SOLD
