    I like this.

    In the new batches of stabilized wood I am cleaning up there are some shorts of Sycamore, Buckeye Burl and Black dyed Maple Burl.
    Nice, but short, good stuff for ferrules.

    Bearing that in mind I could pick out one or two pieces from each new batch that I think are the best and place them in a separate category. Kind of like what I did with the High Grade category during the summer.

    As for the ferrule materials I think I will just list the pieces individually with free shipping and take my chances.
    I think people will be more likely to pick out a ferrule piece to go with a block they are getting, than to just purchase a single ferrule piece.
    I might get bit in the butt once in a while but I am sure everything will balance out over time.

    Not too sure about Machine Gun handle blanks though.


    If anyone goes to the store it is still empty with the exception of one piece.

    #1001 Old Growth Redwood - Stabilized Block
    5&3/4" x 1&1/4" x 1&1/4"
    Free Shipping Worldwide
    Price: $9,999.00
    I am using this as a reference while I am getting the new store inventory ready for the 2013 Grand Re-Opening.
    I figured that by placing that price on it would prevent someone buying it while I am using it as a reference for some of the text that is used on each listing.

    But....if someone wants to go ahead and buy it, that's ok too.
    I would even send a fancy thank you card to the buyer.
    When I wrote that I was meaning with this. I'm sure for 10k you would find some ferrules to throw in.

    Love the handles Mike. I am saddened by the lack of westerns, but they look great regardless.
