Additional Information: Totara is a medium to large tree that grows throughout the North Island and northeastern South Island of New Zealand. The wood is very hard and has a reddish color. Occasionally the tree has 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. This wood is somewhat rare and is highly sought after by wood turners. The Totora Burl used in my knives comes from the North Island of New Zealand and has Birdseye and nice swirly figure with cracks/crevices.

 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 New Zealand Totara Burl.
