Has anyone used Mesquite for knife handles? I picked up some on a Texas hunting trip and am considering making a knife with it. It is not burl, just a couple of dry pieces from a firewood pile. So far I have just sawed it into a couple of blanks. A pretty blond sort of color but it does not show much in the way of impressive grain; maybe with some serious sanding and some oil??? Would sure like to see a pic of someone's finished product. Thanks and Happy New Year!
