    That's going to be one sweet knife. Can't wait to see the finished product. I don't believe I've ever seen rosewood Burl.

    Rosewood burl is some amazingly beautiful stuff!! BUT, It does need to be properly seasoned or dried fully, or it will shrink and crack and bow, It gets ugly fast.. dont ask me how I know!! lol

    These blocks have been seasoned for over 3 years by me and the seller seasoned for 2 1/2 years B4 I purchased it.. Its finally ready to use!

    Here is a pic, enjoy.

    Thanks, The grind is a full flat with a slight convex toward the cutting edge. This helps to keep food sticking to a minimum. and makes the geometry better at the transition between the cutting bevel and the main grind..

    Appreciate the comments. Made a little more progress today, Cut and shaped the damascus bolsters and fitted them to the blade. Cut and sanded the scales.
    Thanks for looking.
