I really love African blackwood, and thought I would give this a try, without the highest of expectations. Well, it finished so smooth and glassy. Very fine grain. Tons of cool streaks. Glued up well. It's similar to most redwood/ blackwoods when cutting; lots of smoke, and probably dulls your bladed. Sanded well. Will definitely purchase more of these blocks for future kitchen knife projects.
