LOL! I've always been a wood fetishist, but mostly played with Pine and such, because it was cheap. Making the knives allows me to indulge it, and boy have I. I have a page on my knife website where I sell select woods, in order to trim down the hoard from time to time. I just got a new shipment, including 6 or 8 types I've never used before. Can't wait to play with them. I should post some pics of some of my fancier wood work.
