Our Black Walnut stock comes directly from a farm in Southern MN. When our vendor was a child, his father harvested the wood. Including the age of the trees when harvested, he believes the wood to be around 125-140 years old!
In many ways the Black Walnut, commonly referred to as "gun stock," is similar to the Eastern Red Cedar in that there is a wide range of coloring (light almond to dark, deep brown) as well as changing grain patterns. The cool thing about the Black Walnut grain is that it often appears like tiger striping and some pieces are quite iridescent when held at certain angles in the sunlight.
This is a 7.25" heat treated hardened stainless steel, polished mirror finished blade; a replica of the leech lake blade, not knife.

This is a hand crafted wooden piece. DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER!! A little mild soap and rinse with water will do just fine.
