    Thanks guys,the Damascus VG-10 Spalted Tamarind,--Fujiwara FKH dyed Box Elder burl,--Skinner knife dyed box elder burl,-Suisin Inox Redwood burl,--Fujiwara FKM white maple burl(burlsource),Carbonext dyed black ash burl.

    All the wood I bought already stabilized.The redwood burl I got off E-Bay only the outside of the scale was coated once I started sanding the wood got soft & unstable,Stepan had told me that some stabilization is not that good,I had to find out the hardway.Unless buying fr. a known site like burlsource & a few others you are taking a chance.I got some nice Koa that I gave Stepan to send out in his next box.

    Yes I made a couple of these,because some of the scales for knives are quite thick,I cut some off & use it for the folders.They are 440 steel,was able to put a very sharp convex edge on both blades.That blade & a couple knives I sold already to some cook friends.The second one I made has a couple mosaic pins in it.

    I have to contact Dave,I think I have to join the hobby forum,as it is illegal to post finished knives
