Duksniffer generously sent me some wood for knifemaking, I realised yesterday it had arrived (missus had put it in the cupboard) and cos it was raining I just had to try it out. He says its Kohekohe crotch (from the fork of two branches)....outstanding, so I pulled apart a Svord Peasant knife just to try it....
