    The first looks like Black G10/Desert Ironwood and the second appears to be G10/Spalted Maple

    *Edit: Both are beauties, no matter what

    :thumbsup:

    Second one is G10 & spalted maple for sure, I've got two.
    Not sure what the wood is for the first though

    They are both the same~ gorgeous! If that's spalted maple it's the best I've ever seen. Normally it's lots of light and dark lines where this looks more burl-like than anything. Sure it's not maple burl?

    This is more of a typical spalted look I would expect. This even shows some quilt patterns.

    Here's some black ash burl too -

    I think that Leonardo63 could be correct. Maple Burl makes more sense, not Spalted.

    The more that I look at it, the more that it reminds me of a Bark River Gameskeeper that I had which was 1 of a 300 piece run for AG Russell with Maple Burl handle slabs
