    I like them exotic, but I don't mind the occasional blonde

    And the inevitable question when it comes to blondes....Does the handle match the ferrule?

    Still waiting for you know who to chime in - Me likey. I have always been preferential to the FUN blond though.

    The wood in the photo is the Cascara Sagrada I got this summer. I wasn't sure if it would be suitable for handle material so I dried some and sent it in to be stabilized. The first batch was small just to see what would happen. The wood takes really to stabilizing with a significant weight gain. Plus no visible pores so it should polish up real good. To me it is a lot like quilted maple but cleaner coloring.

    I will put some in the store later today if things go as planned.

    I hope you know who knows that this was just intended as good natured teasing.

    Clever post!

    I have no idea who this 'you know who' is, but that's nice wood and might also look great in a wa-handle. (Yo's handles are a different story in my book.)

    I guess you-know-who isn't the only one!

    Wait a second, you would accept this wood on a wa handle but not a yo?

    I'm confused...

    (Good looking wood, Mark.)

    Sorry - no, I mean I'm more of a traditionalist with the wa's. To me busier/custom wood looks better on the yo's.

    Here is a short video.
    While the figure would do well on an octagon shaped handle, I think it would look better on a D or a Western handle myself.
