Additional Information: Snakewood is named for its characteristic snakeskin pattern and is one of the world's hardest wood. This wood is usually cut down with axes and carried on the backs of indigenous people through snake infested jungles.  Each tree that is cut down is monitored and is subject to a strict permit process to control harvesting. The wood is typically reddish brown with contrasting darker brown or black patches. The tree is quite rare and is probably the most expensive of any exotic lumber. The Snakewood I use comes from Suriname South America.

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 has lots of figure and provides a nice contrast to the Snakewood.
