..... be still my fluttering heart
That for real....?! Source please....?!
USPS tracking is useless right now and I was surprised to receive my Amboyna Burl tonight. I already know the knife specs are right on with this knife, I was unsure about Amboyna Burl but I’m glad I pulled the trigger, get one you can’t go wrong, it’s definitely nice looking wood. I will post Pics later or tomorrow. edit: I forgot to add, it came out of the box real sharp.
The source was Mike at CK knives he called it popcorn stag and he picked me a winner!
Amboyna burl arrived tonight.
Took a couple pictures of it next to my grey oak swayback.
Nice…a traditional knife with modern CF and steel. It will make a great travel companion that will shrug off temperature and humidity fluctuations with ease.
Thank you @sf fanatic it’s my first knife with this type of wood, at first I didn’t know what to think of it but it sure does look nice
I got my Amboyna Burl in today. Though I don't like it as much as my Stag and Ram's Horn, it is a very pretty wood.
You guys have me thinking real hard about the Amboyna Burl.
Mine is sitting in the box in the gun room after arriving late yesterday evening. Hopefully get it out and get some photos later. They all look good.
Very nice foursome that you have Dylan !!! I can not argue with your opinion but for years I have had a little different opinion on the cover choices . My personal order is : STAG , IRONWOOD , AMBOYNA , EXTERNAL RAMS HORN . The one thing that they each have in common is : There is no other exact match for the cover on your own knife for either of those choices . Looking forward to my Amboyna . I hope mine looks as nice as yours . Carry yours in good health my friend .
Here are some poorly lit pics of my burl. Not as much tight figure and more smoke than the others I have seen. Jury is still out...
Just got my Amboyna and I am pretty satisfied with it .
As received photos :
After a little rework and a wax job :
I just did not like the looks of it . Did not like the Flat Top and Edge look . Did not like the look of the Un-finished Look to the wood . Now it is Mine . I finally have My Amboyna Wood knife .
Go for it my friend . Amboyna does not come along very often .
What type of wax did you use? Thanks
Some Gunstock wax that I found at a True Value store .
My Burl is out for delivery today
Really looking forward to this one!
Love my 2020 BF Viper!!
Love it !!!
