I just got these blocks back from being stabilized at K&G this morning.
These blocks came from a batch of Bog Oak I had imported from the Ukraine a couple months ago.
Some people had requested some of this wood without being stabilized so I listed a few dozen blocks in my webstore. They all sold within hours.
There were quite a few others who had requested some stabilized blocks. Now they are finally ready.
What I had done was set aside what I felt were the very best blocks to get stabilized.
These blocks cost more than the others for a couple reasons.
#1 I felt they were the best ones and #2 the cost of getting them stabilized.
They may cost a little more than what you have been paying for normal wood handle material, but I think you will agree that for what you are getting they are a good deal. I am so sure you will love these blocks that they come with a "no questions asked, money back guarantee".
Free Shipping Worldwide as well.
I have copies of the carbon dating reports for this wood. If you get a block and want a hard copy of the report just make a note during checkout and I will send it with your blocks.

Minus the ones that a couple of the guys here already got as I was loading them in the store.

Didn't smell bad but I looked kind of funny. Kind of like a raccoon.

Only 4 blocks (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-Stabilized-Knife-Handle-Blocks-cln-Bog-Oak/Categories) left.
This is not something that is easy for me to get.
I am going to try to get more but you have to jump through a lot of hoops buying and selling with Russia.
