Additional Information: Redwoods are the tallest living trees on earth. In the mid 1800ís logging operations took place in Northern California, where these trees grow, leaving behind a bunch of stumps that were deemed unusable. These stumps are now being salvaged. Most of this salvaged wood has been dried over a hundred years. The stumps often have burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood has an amazing amount of figured birdseye-- probably some of the highest concentration of birdseye in any wood in the world. 

Box Elder is a fast growing tree that was often planted as a shade tree and for windbreaks. The wood is plain but sometimes Box Elder 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. The Box Elder Burl I use in my knives comes from a storm-damaged tree that was part of the original trees planted during the Mormon migration to Utah. This particular piece has lots of figure and provides a nice contrast to the Redwood Burl.
