Additional Information: Myrtle is a deciduous tree native to the Pacific Northwest. The tree grows large and is a  strong dense wood used in gun stocks and musical instruments. The tree occasionally produces a burl that makes a growth in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots and swirly figure. The Myrtle Burl I use in my knives comes from Oregon and has swirly figure, Bark Inclusions, and cracks/crevices.

Honduras Rosewood is a very hard and heavy wood with multi red and brown colors. Honduras Rosewood has a distinctive rose fragrance. This wood has been sought after hundreds of years ago from furniture and musical instrument makers. Honduras Rosewood sometimes 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 and is sliced into veneers and thus accounts for much of its rarity and price. The Honduras Rosewood Burl that I use has been sustainably harvested. This piece of burl has both Heartwood and Sapwood that gives contrasting tan on maroon colors and provides a nice contrast to the Myrtle Burl.
