    Thanks guys.

    Myth, I like the tiger wood as it looks decent and it's pretty dense. I had a block given to me awhile back. I'm comfortable now with using a more exotic wood so I'd like to try something figured, burl, or spalted. For some reason I really like spalted woods.

    I really like the shape of that knife, and the wood looks great too. I also love spalted wood, even though it can be tough to find blocks that are spalted heavily enough to really show a good pattern. I havent managed to track any down so far that was quite what i was after. Be careful buying stabilized burls as it can be quite an addiction haha. I have a few pieces of very nice amboyna that i really want to use but have not made something that i felt they suited yet. Usually i start looking at burl blocks and adding to the cart, then have to go back and pare the list down to the ones i really like, just so my other half doesnt kill me when hundreds of dollars worth of little wood blocks show up. If you ever see in the newspaper that a guy was hospitalized after being pelted with small chunks of expensive wood, you will know that i must have lost my mind and went on a mad shopping spree at burlsource lol.

    Thanks Grayzer. Have you looked at stabilizing your own handle material? I can't stand the cost of buying stabilized wood when I know I can buy the wood much cheaper locally and possibly do it myself.

    I stabalized my own wood for years. At one time we were buying Methyl Methacrylate in 45 gallon drums.
    The chemicals are expensive,messy,toxic and in most cases quite dangerous.
    I now just find the wood I want and send it to Iowa.
