    Stabilized Palm Blocks - Batch Deal

    I got these 5 blocks on a trade from a knifemaker.
    They are all labeled as red Palm but I am sure that is not correct.
    The dark ones look like Black Palm I got from Laos a few years ago. The other two light ones are red Palm.
    These blocks have been stabilized by K&G and have no visible flaws.

    It would be a few days before I could add them individually to my webstore so I thought I would check to see if someone here wanted to buy them as a batch at a big discount.

    $100 for the 5 blocks including shipping. No further discounts at this price.
    I thought these would make good wa handles.
    The dark ones are 4&1/2" x 1&1/4" x 1&1/4" or larger.
    The red ones are 6" x 1&1/2" x 1&1/8" or larger.
    Side A


    Side B


    If you want these blocks make a post here in this thread.
    They go to the first one to post "I'll take them" here in this thread.

    That deal is really tempting, dark palm is a favorite of mine. I will wait a bit and if these are still available I may have to take the batch.

    Last day for these as a batch.
    Tomorrow afternoon they go into the store.
    I was just being lazy so I wouldn't have to set up a new category in the store.

    Dark Palm looks like "leopard" to me, although I can't wrap my head around why it's spotted looking on the "top" and striped on looking on the "sides."

    With palm the grain looks like the 2 blocks to the right.
    If the block is cut diagonally across the grain it shows the dots on one surface and the diagonal lines along the other.
