    72 Blocks of Stabilized Koa

    I just finished adding a bunch of stabilized Koa blocks to my web store.
    Last I looked there were 72 blocks with prices averaging between $35 to $65 each. A few are lower and a few higher. This is the best selection of stabilized Koa blocks I have ever had. All were stabilized by K&G.

    This link will take you to that section of the store.

    These are a few of my favorites;

    Spalted Koa


    Fiddleback Red Koa


    Blister or Birdseye Koa


    Crushed Velvet Koa



    No matter how I tried I could not get the photos to look nearly as good as they look in real life. If I could figure out how, I think the best way would be to take a video in the sunlight. Then you would see that this wood reflects a metallic flash like a bicycle reflector in your headlights.

    Too late... I really would like to find out about Mark's sources. Some of his blocks are better than anything I have seen here locally. Somebody has to be hiding these treasures from me. I don't need much, I guess 4-5 BF would last me a lifetime - and cost more than my car...

    Getting the really good stuff is not always a matter of just finding the wood and paying for it.
    Sometimes you have to do a couple favors on the side, like burning down a house or bumping someone off.
    It kind of bugged me at first but you get used to it after a while.

    It should be there any time.
    Usually takes 6 to 10 days to the UK.

    I really like the look of your blades, so ....... maybe we can do a little horse trading in the future?
