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 presentation 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 Spalted Oak is from a species of oak called White Oak. White Oak is native to North America in the eastern and central United States and eastern and central Canada. Spalted Oak is technically not a particular type of Oak species but refers to Oak that is in the process of rotting and has a bunch of fungi in the wood. The fungi sometimes makes dark brown figure throughout the wood and results in some unique looking figure. This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Curly Koa.
