It would be hard to overstate Black Walnut’s popularity among woodworkers in the United States. Its cooperative working characteristics, coupled with its rich brown coloration puts the wood in a class by itself among temperate-zone hardwoods. To cap it off, the wood also has good dimensional stability, shock resistance, and strength properties.
Cherry, like most woods, varies in color. From a light blond with distinct graining to a dark copper tan.
The Eastern Red Cedar is CHB Custom Fillet Knives, LLC signature knife. The array of changing color and grain even in the same piece of stock is simply amazing! It is not uncommon to find a light, blond/almond coloring on one end of the stock only to find marbling deep red/maroon coloring on the other end. When ordering, you can indicate a preference but it is simply impossible to replicate the same coloring and grain since no two are alike. A 7.25" heat treated hardened stainless steel blade
Spalting is simply a fungal discoloration of wood, and can be found on a wide range of wood species and genera. It is found in wood that has begun initial stages of decay, and is then subsequently dried (preventing further decay). The partial decay, called spalting, can give the wood dark contrasting lines and streaks where fungus has begun to attack the wood. If the wood has been rescued from the spalting at the right time, the lumber should still be sound and usable.
Hickory is among the hardest and strongest of woods native to the United States. On average, Hickory is denser, stiffer, and harder than either White Oak or Hard Maple. The wood is commonly used where strength or shock-resistance is important. Hickory is also used as charcoal in cooking meat, with the smoke imparting additional flavor to the food.
