Additional Information:  Koa is a large tree that is native to Hawaii. Historically, Koa was used to make outrigger canoes and surfboards. The wood is reddish and is now used for furniture and musical instruments. Koa is a scarce wood because most Koa forests have been turned into pasture and animals love to eat the seedlings. Now most of the Koa comes from dead or dying trees on private property. Koa can take on a curly appearance which look like 3-D ripples or waves in the grain pattern. Curly Koa is highly desirable, scarce, expensive, and used in high dollar guitars with some guitars fetching $3,000 and more. Fender guitar made a limited edition models of the Telecaster and Stratocaster in 2006. The Koa I use in my knives is of the highest grade and has a large amount of 3-D curls. This Koa came from a storm damaged on the Island of Hawaii near the Kilauea volcano on private property. This particular piece has great striped figure with 3-D Chatoyance throughout.

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. This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Curly Koa.
