Additional Information: Ironwood is native to the Sonoran Desert and is found in Mexico, Arizona, and California. The wood 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. The wood I use is from dead trees that are over 200 years old and is legally obtained. Ironwood sometimes produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage. This particular piece of Ironwood Burl is highly figured.  

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 yellow to provide a great contrast to the Ironwood Burl.
