Additional Information: Ironwood is native to the Sonoran Desert and is found in Mexico, Arizona, and California. The Ironwood it produces is so hard and dense that it sinks in water. It was typically used for firewood and charcoal. The wood is not in immediate danger of extinction but is a protected wood in Mexico. Sometimes a tree produces a burl which is a growth in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots and swirly figure. The wood I used for the handle is from a burl that is over 200 years old, was legally obtained, and has outrageous figure.

Hickory is a deciduous tree and the wood is hard, dense, strong, stiff and tough. Its used whenever you make an item that needs super strong wood, like skis, tool handles, drum sticks, and golf club shafts to name a few. The wood is rather plain and light-colored but when it becomes spalted the wood is mind-blowing. Spalted Hickory is wood that was in the process of rotting and had fungi in the wood. The fungi made swirly brown lines throughout the light-colored wood and results in some wild looking figure and provides a nice contrast to the Ironwood Burl.
