El Pescador keeps telling me to get some ancient Kauri wood for handle material.
Well, a couple weeks ago there was a couple here from New Zealand and they said the same thing.
What do you all think of this type of wood?
I have never seen it in person, just photos and they weren't very exciting.
Sure it's like 40 or 50,000 years old.
But...is that enough to make people want it for handle material?
and did I mention it is almost as expensive as Koa.
I look forward to your input.
BTW I have a couple pieces on the way so I can see it in person.
If it looks OK I will send it in to get stabilized.
