Some of the great knife makers here at iKC are making knives with handles of a very rare "Sticky Pine" wood that came to my attention recently. The wood comes from a 300+ year old pine that was cut in the year 1900 then the stump languished in a seasonally wet swamp for 110 years more until it was harvested last year. It has about as much resin as any specimen ever found. If you search the forum for "sticky pine" you can see some of the amazing first creations with the wood.
I have a few more pieces of the wood if you seriously want to handle a knife with it and post photos and comments to our group by the end of June.
