Additional Information: The Totara is a special tree to the indigenous peoples of New Zealand, the Maori. They traditionally harvested the huge Totara log for their sea-going Waka (canoe). The tree would be felled and hollowed out by repeatedly burning the inside until the heavy shelled vessel was crafted into a war machine which was capable of raiding enemies over great sea distances. The Totara tree is reputed for the amazing burl wood which can grow on its trunk. This burl wood is increasingly rare and makes beautiful knife handles.

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 is dyed yellow to provide a great contrast to the Totara Burl.
