Additional Information: Box Elder is a fast growing tree that was often planted as a shade tree and for windbreaks. The wood is plain but sometimes Box Elder produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured. The Box Elder Burl I use in my knives comes from a storm-damaged tree that was part of the original trees planted during the Mormon migration to Utah. This particular piece is dyed blue to bring out the beautiful figure of the wood.

Ebony is a super dense black wood that will sink in water. The wood takes on a beautiful smooth finish when polished and can sometimes have brownish colored streaks. Ebony is considered an ornamental wood and historically was used for the black keys of a piano. Cameroon ebony comes from the Western Africa nation of Cameroon and was legally obtained. This wood is one of the most expensive of all woods and provides a nice contrast to the Blue Box Elder Burl.
