    Need Your Opinion on a New Piece of Wood

    I just got my hands on this piece of Chechen Burl. As you can see, it has one live edge. I'd like to know how many of you would prefer the live edge to stay. I can probably get five handles out of this. Maybe I'll just keep a couple and cut the rest, but I'd like to see what your preferences are. After it's cut it still needs to dry a while before being stabilized so you won't see them in the store so fast. Thanks.

    Just curious: Are you getting some of your wood from Hawaii? Nice pieces, you are building up a great stash of woods. As for your question, I will leave that to others...

    Keep the edge. Looks great

    I knew you'd want it Mike. I have a piece of Pollyanna Burl with a live edge that I might be putting up tomorrow. It's a bit on the small size, but would work for a petty or parer for sure. I'll post it if I do.

    I like the edge on the more rustic knives. So I can go either way and still love it.

    I think the live edge is awesome. I'd love to see a really nice knife with a uniquely imperfect shape of a handle. It's the little imperfections that make things so beautiful.
