Nice wood

Jason the wood guy posted a nice block so I bought it and a couple more to make the shipping worth the cost of getting it here.

Jason does get some really nice wood.

You have to be fast on the draw though. They go fast.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

If I see something come up I can get it but I talk to him and ask what he has and he will send any number of pics so I can make my choices. He has a far larger inventory than the few blocks he shows on the FB page. I am a nice wood afficianado (some might say addict) so I do find it hard to stop at "just one" but I get to marvel at them in hand. The nice wood is always the hardest part of the completed knife to let go when they are ready to ship.

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
