    Here's an unknown suji with some unknown wood.

    This one belongs to a friend of Rio.

    Dave: That looks like a CarboNext.

    That's some crazy looking wood. I would never use that out in the woods or camping. You'll never find it if you drop it.

    I shot those pics outside, the wood coloring looks so much more green inside the shop, really weird stuff.


    Thanks for the ID on the brand Michael.

    Is that box elder burl? Looks funky, and the whole knife is a nice package.

    It does look like box elder but as you know I'm no wood expert.

    My new favorite.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    That's the coolest looking wood on a handle I've ever seen

    Midori Hamono santoku in premium koa wood obtained from Stefan Keller. The handle has been hand rubbed and oil finished, looks great in person and not so great in these pictures...unfortunately. The wood really has some incredible movement.

    This knife is currently being auctioned off for The National Breast Cancer Foundation at Badger & Blade
