Again...Zen and the Art of Knifemaking
- Pics # 5 and 6 in the photo section show
why I think that Ironwood is one of the
most beautiful natural materials. In person,
much like our bodies, emotions, and mind,
it gives a 3D effect that makes the wood
seem to change appearance whenever you move
it. It is, like it's name (and us), hard and
resistant to shaping to a predetermined form.
So it seems to me that it's often best to
just watch it evolve into whatever its
supposed to be.
Peace and blessings,
