    Brilliant item! I have some Persimmons and Grapes that could use a home like that, a very temporary home mind :D

    As has been pointed out, many French cutlers use woods for pocket knives and usually replaceable/sustainable types: Juniper, Boxwood, Olive, Pistachio, Walnut etc.

    I would like Maple to be used more often, it's plentiful and much of it has decent burl or bird's eye.

    One thing this thread has reinforced for me is the love we all have for wood scales. As much as i love seeing bone, horn and stag, there is something just natural and historically hypnotizing about wood. And has been pointed out the variations that each variety can have is attention grabbing. Look at all the variations that Walnut can have and the example that @Misplaced Hillbilly posted.:)
