Adam did these gorgeous rehandle and restorations on some 40 year old Lamson Forks and I'm keeping one and using the excuse of our 10th anniversary of CKTG in 2 weeks.

Tell me which one I should steal. The lighter colored one with the lines though it is spalted maple burl. The second one is stabilized redwood burl.

I'm partial to the darker one -- more elegant, IMHO, especially for use at the table.
