Additional Information: Hard maple is often called sugar maple and is the tree most often tapped for maple syrup. The wood is heavy, strong, and tough and used for flooring, cutting boards, countertops and other items that need a hard strong wood. The tree when cut down can become spalted under warm and wet conditions. Spalted wood is wood that was in the process of rotting and had a bunch of fungi in the wood. The fungi made pen-like black lines throughout the wood and resulted in some wild looking figure. This piece I used for the knife looks awesome with wild black-line pen spalt and lots of figure. 

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 Spalted Hard Maple.

Comes With: Pouch and Knife Stand
