    Greetings all,

    Anyone familiar with this wood and its properties relative to knife handles? It's got great figure, but would be interested in knowing more about it. Thanks.

    If you're thinking about buying this piece, contact the seller to see if it has been stabilized and if so by who. That is a pretty piece of wood.

    I would say it will work fine for a knife handle when stabilized (by K&G)
    The figure will likely look a little duller, but still plenty visible.

    I have to dig around, I think I have a stabilized piece somewhere, but I have not worked with it, yet. Don't know much about the wood except that I bought it locally from someone who imports woods from SE Asia. I have seen it much more burly and figured than the piece you are showing.
