Additional Information: Cottonwood is a deciduous tree that grows up to 45 yards tall. Cottonwoods are exceptionally tolerant to flooding and erosion and are  found throughout the US especially in riparian zones. Sometimes Cottonwood trees produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes radical figure. The Cottonwood Burl I use comes from Northern California and has exceptional figure with bark inclusions.

The Walnut Burl used in my knives came from an old Claro Walnut tree orchard that was cut down and replanted with almond trees near Chico California. The burl from a Claro walnut tree is a growth in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. As a result, Claro walnut burl produces some wild looking figure. This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Cottonwood Burl.
