I don't believe it's stabilized. It's to light for that. He'll be happy whether it's Koa or something else. But I'll keep what you've said in mind. In any event I'll post when I have the knife finished. Which at the rate I'm going could be another month. :oops:
My stepson picked out this wood for his knife that I'm working on. And I have no clue what it is. It's quite light and iridescent when buffed. I was originally thinking Koa but as light as it is I'm thinking otherwise. Opinions?
I've seen a few video's with challenges to make a knife in under that time. But I certainly couldn't do it in 8 hours. 8 Days maybe if I worked on it every day. I do wonder about the heat treat process also.
I'm surprised the guy didn't ask ahead of time how much you charge. Personally I don't think $10 per blade would be too much. Or you could charge a flat $100 for all 12. Just a thought. However I haven't had to sharpen any blades except when I make them.
