    Help.

    So here I am with a new start up business and I'm trying to figure out what kind of woods to get into the store that you guys will most likely want. So hey, why not ask you - what are your favorite woods for knive handle and what will you be looking to buy in the future? Thanks for the help.

    FYI: I have some koa, satinwood, wild almond burl and buckeye in the hopper. It will take a couple of months to get them stabilized, prepped, photographed and on the site.

    Wild almond burl? Don't know what that'll look like, but sounds freaking cool!

    It is. It's kind of a mottle figure with shades of green and purple. I'm waiting for it to dry then I'll have it stabilized, etc. Should be available in the spring.

    Guess your're basically a black and white kind a guy. Thanks for the input. By the way, everyone, I intend to keep track of these and I'll publish a list of the top ten in a month or so.

    I got some olivewood from Mark that is gorgeous. It has some spots that look like they are filled with resin or sap, something.........anyway, it's funky and beautiful. Oh and it smells like olives/olive oil when you sand it.
    Awesome!

    Olive burl, cocobolo burl and black ash burl would be nice.

    I'm most often asked to find ironwood (burl & straight grain), amboyna, buckeye, & koa. I'd like to see more of those as well as Honduran rosewood & thuya. I also love using maple because it finishes so nicely.

    High grade ironwood burls, cocobolo, burls if possible. Ebony, heck it aint woods, but have you thought about synthetics? Carbon fiber, G10, polyester. Then a good stable supply of quality horn, and stuff for spacers. Why limit yourself to woods?

    I have some olivewood burl, but it's pretty green so it will take a while. I agree it's very nice.
