Heres a photo of a pair of knife scales I just bought from Spa City Woods on ebay. The wood is Afzelia xylay burl and hales from southeast Asia. The "xylay" term describes the type of quilted pattern of the burl figure. I'll be using them to re-do the handle of my "Canadian Trapper" knife shown in my post "my cutting tools". The original handle was cracked and poorly repaired so I wanted to replace it with something really nice. I'll do a step by step pictorial when I re-handle the blade.
