I loved working with it Ben, I grew up on Oahu and acacia always reminds me of Hawaiian Koa, which I know are in the same family. The curl is really stunning and it was very easy/consistent to shape and polish. I really like how the lighter golden color paired with the forge scale and patina on the blade. Going to post photos tomorrow on social media and tag you. I’ll definitely keep watching for more acacia blocks when I need more for handles like this. Also I really like the labels you put on the blocks, makes it super simple to keep everything organized.Looks great! I know its about the steel, and i hope you post some experiences down the road, how did you like the acacia?
