    Here is Sean's 2nd rehandle on an (unknown maker's suji - it's very hard to see the mark) done with spalted (coarkboard?) wood.

    BTW - this is officially the last heavily spalted block of wood that I'll ever use on a western handle. It saddens me not be able to provide top quality simply because the wood is inferior. No close-up photos on this handle.

    Looks good from here. Was this wood not stabilized?

    Yeah it was and I gave it a good CA glue stabilization too.

    How do you always end up with the spongy wood, Dave? Looks good from a distance. Btw, what wood is it?
