Additional Information:  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. 

The Fiddleback Walnut used in my knives came from an old Claro Walnut tree orchard that was cut down and replanted with almond trees near Chico California. The Fiddleback Walnut that comes from a Claro walnut tree is a growth in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and made a curly figure similar to the back of long ago violins. This particular piece has nice curls and provides a nice contrast to the Spalted Hickory.
