    Old Stuff from a knife maker's stash

    One of the knife makers that I know was willing to share some of his stash with me.
    These are some blocks that were old when he bought them 4 years ago.
    So.....I think it is safe to say they are dry and ready to use.
    Now I need to get them cleaned up and take some photos so I can post them in the store.

    I know Randy H will be able to guess what they are, so no telling anyone Randy.

    That is because of the camera angle. Most are just under an inch thick, some thicker.

    I will give a hint.
    They come from a country just north of Nicaragua.
    ....and the wood smells spicy when you sand it.

    I knew one of you would figure it out. Honduras Rosewood Burl.
    They look a little better cleaned up. I will start adding the blocks to the store shortly.

    I absolutely love two tone woods. They make incredible handles!!
    I try to be the man I am..in times of broken lives. Shattered dreams and plans..standing up to fight. Pressures and demands..staring at the knife. Holding in your hands..
