I know I make mistakes sometimes, but......I think some people do it on purpose.
There is a guy on ebay selling desert ironwood burl that is not desert ironwood burl.
It is burl, but no way it is ironwood.
Some of that wood made it's way into the knife community and the incorrect name was repeated.
Now, today I stumbled across a piece of Amboyna Burl that the same guy has for sale.
What do you think?
