That spalted tamarind looks superb. Along with the blade. I've got a bunch of that wood but it's not stabilized!

That's way too purdy to get blood all over
One day maybe I can make a knife that purdy. If I live that long.

Spalted Tamarind that I've priced is expensive and when it's stabilized it's even more expensive. Sure makes a beautiful handle.
