    Looking for a natural wood that is slightly tacky when wet (water)?

    Does anyone know of any natural woods that are slightly tack when wet (water)? I am looking for a new knife material.
    Thanks!

    That's the idea behind ho wood. If you don't oil it the fibers stand up when wet. I won't call it tacky but I have no problems when they get wet

    For what purpose do you intend the knife to get wet. Fishing perhaps?

    Hi all
    I'm sorry I should've stated this first.
    I will be using the knife to break down fish. Cork is a good thought
    But too many nooks and crannies, the Board of Health will have a
    field day with it. I am trying to avoid plastic. I thought of beech that's
    the wood they use on Dexter Russell clam knives. I'm just
    Looking for something new. Thanks for the input!

    Just do what I do. With your knife hand, never touch anything else but the handle and it doesn't ever get wet, greasy or dirty.
