Additional Information: Ash trees are known for their dense hardwood. Ash timber is an excellent choice for making furniture or indoor wooden flooring. Due to its strength, ash timber is also used to make baseball bats, tool handles, and musical instruments such as electric guitars. This particular piece of ash has had worm infestation that created little channels of worm poop. You can truly say that you have a shi++y knife!

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 complements the Wormy Ash nicely.
