    I think it is ok for first rehandling projects or maybe on a entry level kuro uchi or a workhorse knife than your higher quality blades

    I agree that it is not really that great for high-end handles or the "pros" but it would be outstanding for beginners or lower price knives. I can think of 1000 things I would use a low price stabilized block of wood for.

    If you put out $10 or $15 maybe even $20 stabilized blocks of wood there could be a huge market for them. I don't care if they were originally 2x4's. When the cooks I work with want their fish spats or crap knives rehandled because they don't want to get new ones I could use that since they think paying $40+ dollars for wood is stupid. There are also inumeral projects I could use it for and of course trying things I've never done before.

    In short. It is not very pretty but there is a large market and variety of uses for not-incredibly beautiful stabilized wood. Just remember keep it affordable. For this you will make your money through volume.

    I agree with having a potential market for it

    This is how I feel.

    I was considering it as saya material as well. If I do, I will let you know.
    The figure looks a lot better over a larger area.
