Alright I picked up some Gnarly Sambar Stag at Blade last weekend!! Once I cut it up I realized I had a Real Winner! Nice thick walls with Very small Pith with Stark Contrast and Stunning Color!! There is not ANY Pith on this here Knife! Paired up with some Beautiful Mesquite Burl! For the Blade I went with Alabama Damascus with Gorgeous Quilting and Patterns! Cryo treat and Tested to 59-60HRC so she's gonna hold a Nice Edge! Highly Detailed Filework and Mosaic Pins to make Her POP! Erica is making a Custom sheath for Her too. 3 5/8" CE and 8" OA Thanx for lookin, Chops

Pith is the soft, bone marrow-like substance found in much of the sambar stag these days. It will often warp, which does not make for good knife handles.

Here's a pic showing the difference between your ordinary Sambar with thin walls and large area of pith then the outstanding Sambar Stag I made this here knife from! Course this one cost almost 7 times as much too!!!
