Well, I'm glad we can have a sense of humor about it! For those that don't know, I suggested this knife as a great choice for Mel in the first place and he posted this thread as a result—I obviously don't have anything against it in that regard and I know it suits Mel's preferences more than mine. I also happen to own the ebony version and think that the ebony handle lends the knife an excellent balance, fit and finish, and aesthetic appeal. I ALSO happen to be on vacation, so don't be offended if I spend a bit more time in a real sandbox with my nieces and nephews. :)

Ha! I'd rather not be accountable for picking up dog shit, but if ya got a dog, I suppose you have no choice.


'Ho' Wood - (Cinnamomum camphora)
Camphor is a white crystalline substance, obtained from the tree Cinnamomum camphora. Camphor has been used for many centuries as a culinary spice, a component of incense, and as a medicine. Camphor is also an insect repellent and a flea-killing substance. It has been declared a noxious weed in many parts of Queensland and New South Wales. - Wikipedia


- Not a mention of any woodworking attributes anywhere? Works good for perfume tho, and insect repellent...and for pissing people off.



Ebony
Ebony is a dense black wood, most commonly yielded by several different species in the genus Diospyros. Ebony is dense enough to sink in water. It is finely-textured and has a very smooth finish when polished, making it valuable as an ornamental wood. The word ebony derives from the Ancient Egyptian hbny, via the Ancient Greek ἔβενος (ébenos), by way of Latin and Middle English. - Wikipedia


- Solid, like a rock...and keeps on lookin good. ;)

Sigh... I don't have a dog in this fight and if I had one shred of common sense I would butt out.

Na...I got it wrong. Thanks for the correction Rick. I actually thought I might have gotten it wrong, because the one that I linked to just sounded so brutal. My bad...

Glad I could entertain tho, even if I ended up looking like a douche! :)

Love you guys. :lol: And I'll get in the pit once I get back from the Gulf.

GONE FISHING!

Oh, and "looks good" is subjective... I for one don't like pushing heavy ass pigs around.. and although Sara, my Nubian Princess, was an absolute gymnast on my handle :twisted: - I typically don't keep ebony in my grip.
