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
Inclusions, and cracks/crevices.
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.
