Default Exotic wood help

I am in need of a good source for knife handle material. Do any of you knife makers have a good source for exotic woods that you can share. I can find plenty on ebay and the knife supply websites but some of the prices are crazy high and what you end up getting is hardly ever what they show in the pictures.
I like to buy 2"x2" and 1.5"x1.5" 16" to 24" long and then cut it up on my band saw to get my scales so I can control the grain direction better.
I am down to a small amount now and need to make another 20 knives before Sept 1st. This is all I have left and I need about 4-5 times this much.
Obviously I need mostly hard dense woods.

TIA
