...My spalted beech basicly changed color after a few months. After cleaning and running it under warm water it seems to lighten up back to where it first was. Hope that helps a bit. Side note... lighter or darker, you will love it the same trust me
I have a small spalted beech inbound (sort of...it's locked up, pre-gifted to me for an upcoming occasion). I'm kind of anticipating it to change a bit over time with use. A little darkening and enriching from handling is going to be mind blowing! This pic doesen't come close to doing it justice (poor lighting), but it's as close as I can get to the knife for now.
