    Astounding collection of ironwood. What an art gallery of masterpieces.

    Absolutely beautiful ironwood James! Gt is right. Scary faces. :eek:

    Amazing and wonderful specimens as always Dave.

    I do have one customer that is pushing 50 of my knives in his collection. He checks the website everyday. Once in a while his wife will tell him he's being grumpy, go buy one of Dave's knives.

    - absolutely. You're right...........it does that like no other wood, well, no other I can immediately think of.

    Other burls are stunning in their own way, with tightly packed rosettes and the like, but none quite like Desert Ironwood.

    Have collected loads of wood bits over the years, will have a rummage......
