Beautiful knife. What 85 year old chunk of wood/artifact did you make it out of?

The family has the wood that they sent to me. Lightest piece of wood I've ever handled. Guess it's from drying out all these years.

yea.

hey, on a side note. i gave away a bunch of wood to a guy fighting depression. he forges knives to distract himself from pain (dunno - i didnt get into it).

i found one more small chunk of old cocobolo wood. also feather light. you can have it if you want it. it's enough for one knife - i think.

If I can't use it I'll find someone that can! I'll pm you my address. Thank you my man! I always like seeing what comes out of something "laying around" :)

it's a perfect piece for a pair of knife scales. i'll go rummage for it tonight. i saw it while rooting around for lantern fuel.
