    With something as dense as Ironwood, it would stand up to quite a bit I reckon. doing a quick search, it is used for decking (the Ipe type which isn't as pretty but still pretty dense) and the extreme density means that it doesn't take stabilizing resin very well (and is considered unnecessary). would guess it is on the short list of woods to not worry about washing much (as long as you aren't using high pressure or steam near joints). Maybe someone else will have more info.

    That's good to know since a stretch in SB would be a great knife for me.

    Wayne's design is probably one of our most successful collaborations. The latest will be a fine piece.

    I might have to suck it up and get an Endura myself....they are far from my favourite Spyderco, but I like SB enough that I might just use it.

    The D'Allara DP is one I covet! Flat ground would be superb.

    Over on BladeForum, a member paid a visit to the SFO and got a pretty cool personal tour of the factory from Gail. Here's the link to the thread:

    My-Visit-and-Full-Tour-of-the-Spyderco-Factory-PICS

    Here's the bombshell from the thread:

    "There's one display that went up a week before we got there. I don't think I should say anything about it, because she seemed not to want people to know about it. I'll keep quiet. But if you're in to high end kitchen knives...I'd make a trip to Golden, Colorado before the holidays are over."

    Hoo, boy! The new kitchen knives are almost here!

    Considering talks about new kitchen knives made in China, I hope that high end is really high end and made in Seki or Golden. I really need one more Chef's knife. Paring will be nice as well.

    We are of the same hope. The Yin & Yang were terrific knives. Hoping for something even more special.

    VG10 is fine for me, but I would like a thinner grind. 8-9" Chef's would be great. Nice wood or micarta and bolsters.
