Some old growth redwood

I wanted something a bit special for my summer KITH knife and Burlsales.com had just what I wanted. It’s stabilized by K&G so it will hold up more easily than raw wood, making it more suitable for a knife that will see regular use. I didn’t really give it the full treatment for the photo, just a quick sanding and oil, then buff, but you can at least get an idea of the natural beauty waiting to be revealed.
