exotic woods

I finally finished the KusariGama that I was working on, it looks gorgeous, the grain is incredible. I'm probably going to make a shoto out of this wood as well. For those that are considering weapons building I discovered that Wenge sawdust and me do not get along(it makes my skin itch) many hardwoods contain resin's that can be irritating and/or cause an alergic reaction so beware. Impact grade Hickory is nice but I personally can't stand the feel of hickory

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow
That's what makes my Thumper go
