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.

I was told by a long-standing customer that his 7-year-old knife was, "like new." I asked, "How can that be?" He said, "Because I take care of it!" So, I encourage three things; (1) it is sharpened. You keep it HONED! (2) Blade is friction fit (channeled) in the sheath. Reinsert the blade in same spot you extracted it. (3) A little mild soap and water, rinse, and wipe dry.
