    Ironwood here. Mostly because I don’t have any..

    I’d be thrilled with Bloodwood, though. It’s the best looker of any of my woods.

    I missed where Mike said it would be brass pins only. Now that I know I'm glad I voted for bloodwood. Brass pins look better on red, or brown wood scales, compared to black wood scales in my opinion.

    I keep thinking the ironwood, with the brushed bolsters, and a brushed propeller shield would look awfully nice too.
    I may change my votes...

    Some great options all around. Glad to see some samples posted in the thread. Voted for Bloodwood. Mostly because the name is sick. Jk

    Initially voted AB but may change to Osage or desert ironwood. Would be great to see more pics of those if anyone has them.
    Just not seeing what the big deal is with blood wood at all, myself. Looks like a reddish mahogany and rather ordinary to me.

    That’s my exact thought. I would think the ones who think Ebony is so boring, would like the brass accents to break up the “boring black.”:)

    THIS, THIS and more of THIS! I'm loving the darker bloodwood. If I can't get cocobolo, the bloodwood it is.

    To be honest, I feel like Bloodwood was a bit of a sleeper...

    No complaints though, it is a nice looking wood. Vote still remains for AB. ;)
