Additional Information: The Spalted Cherry Burl comes from a tree in Southern California that was removed because it was causing property damage. This particular piece has wild figure with lots of Birdseye and also has dark brown spalt spots.

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 and provides a nice contrast to the Honduras Rosewood Burl.
