Camellia wood for handle material?

Dec 30, 2006
This is the first entry in this forum for me and although my experience constructing knifes is rather limited I have always been very interested. I have been around wood and carpentry forever and when I saw a large quanity of camellia wood available I instinctually gathered it up. Does anyone have any experience with this wood being used as handle material for custom knives? I have plenty and would like to see how it would look if anyone is interested. Let me know if anyone is interested in trying some.
