2 of my new Quinn creations. Great knots ! Handles speak for themselves, but the knots are tremendous! Bob, you keep getting most of my disposable income.

Did you get the standard finest knots? For me I think they’re the equal to Maggard’s SHD and cheaper!

Buckeye Burl

Buckeye burl grows in the central states of the US, chiefly the Ohio Valley and Appalachian regions.   The botanical name for the Buckeye is Aesculus, from “Aesculapius,” the name of the mythological Greek god of medicine.  The common name “Buckeye” was derived from the Native Americans who noticed that the glossy, chestnut-brown seeds with the lighter circular “eye” looked very similar to the eye of a buck (male) deer.    Early travelers and explorers carried the rare and curious buckeye to the east with them and reported the Aesculus highly prized medicinal properties and talismanic attribute of wisdom. Some believe that the buckeye relieves rheumatism pain and provides good fortune when carried in the pockets of their garments or worn as an amulet around the neck. Instantly dubbed “buckeye” in frontier speech, the mysterious nut was used as a general cure-all for generations.  As a result, citizens of Ohio became known as “Buckeyes.” The buckeye tree was officially adapted as the state tree on October 2, 1953.

This piece has been sitting on my bench for a while, patiently waiting to be turned.  The brilliant blue of the upper section really "pops" on this one.  This brush has just been listed on my site.

I have just listed this brush on my site.  This stone turns and finishes beautifully and would look great on anyone's counter.

Azurite with Malachite - 26mm

Azurite, is an intense deep blue color and often occurs with Malachite. Different sources claim the name is derived from the Persian word lazhward or from the Arabic word azul, both of which mean blue.  Azurite is found in Australia, Chile, France, Mexico, Morocco, Nambia, the southwestern USA, and Zaire.  For thousands of years this stone has been used in jewelry and ornamental objects. During the Middle Ages and Renaissance it was ground into pigment for use in paint and eye shadow.  It is not known widely as a birthstone, but several references indicate it may have been used as a birthstone for the sign of Taurus.  Azurite was sacred to the Egyptians who believed it was an aid to spiritual communication.  Many believe that this stone helps to reduce anger and to increase psychic awareness. It is also thought to reduce abnormal cell growth, promote wisdom, and is used as an aid to relieve the pain of rheumatism.

This one is a special brush and I don't expect it to last long.  It has just been listed at www.eliterazor.com.

Damascus Steel (26mm)

Damascus Steel, which technology only recently made available in a form that may be worked on a lathe.  Traditional Damascus Steel is a type of steel alloy that is both hard and flexible, a combination that made it ideal for the building of swords. It is said that when Damascus-made swords were first encountered by Ottomans during the Crusades, it garnered an almost mythical reputation—a Damascus steel blade was said to be able to cut a piece of silk in half as it fell to the ground, as well as being able to chop through normal blades, or even rock, without losing its sharp edge.
