    Some burl on burl action

    I wouldn't normally put two burls togeather, but I kinda like these two. I was going to use the rosewood for the ferrule and Maple for the handle. What do you guys think, should I? Its going on one of my knives

    I think that would be a great combo. Since the grain pattern is pretty similar, I think they would match up well and provide nice color contrast.

    Seems like a very Del-esque thing to do. I don't hear too many people complaining about his choices in handle material.

    I think it would work out really good.
    Good contrasting colors as opposed to clashing.
    I bet it would look really good if you used a black spacer between the two different woods.

    I agree with the black spacer suggestion. And I would make sure there is enough rosewood left for a handle, looks like a great piece...

    I think it would cool the other way around if the rosewood is big enough for a handle.

    The maple kinda looks like a blond ferrule on a rosewood wa knife

    +1. I'm a light ferrule/dark handle fan.

    I don't think I've really seen many knives with the lighter colour handle and dark ferrule with woods like these, it sounds like it would look interesting
