    Greg, top row fourth from the left. What is that stuff? It is gorgeous! Also what is the solid black horn next to the whitish horn?

    It's pretty sad when the only stuff in my private stash was the left over burl you gave me hahaha. I really like that stuff so it's waiting for a special one.

    Frank if you mail them to me, I'll verify the quantity for you. I'm pretty sure atleast some of them will make it back to ya also. ;p


    I'm saving up for the gem & fossil show next year. Plan to seriously increase my walrus stash.

    GNiCr40Al4. It is some kind of Nuclear Sub non-magnetic aluminum based alloy. Do a BF search on the name.

    And you thought I'd never move from plain carbon..... pfft!

    I intend on hot forging to shape and cold forging to increase HRC a few points. The heat treat regime for this stuff is pretty cool... literally. It's all very "private", hence the stash.

    Well I'll be... go big or go home, eh? That sounds fascinating. Welcome to the bright side, brother

    I picked up some decent cocobolo last weekend but nothing that compares to that.
