Look what the mail man dropped off today! :detective:

2 slabs of KILLER ironwood burl! :evilgrin: Im pretty stoked about them. From the pics on the net, It was hard to tell what I was gona get. These were covered in 1/8 inch of wax and dust, etc. so the pics were pretty crappy. I really had to sorta, squint and cover one eye and stand back from the computer and imagine what these were gona look like!! Needless to say. after scraping off all the wax and sanding them down a bit.. Im very pleased. There even better then I had imagined! :EDance2:

Gona make some beautiful knives for sure!! After I cut these into blocks. Ill post a couple better pics. If anyone wants to switch to a block of this wood for there knife order. I will be happy to offer it to you guys first! :)
