Topic tags/keywords: desert ironwood pen blanks turning wood knife scale blocks

Hi Folks,

Is there any interest out there in Desert Ironwood (the real thing OLNEYA TESOTA) for pen blanks or knife scales?

I sell Ironwood pen blanks for $4 each (Burl is $6 and sapwood burl mix is $8), these blanks are 3/4” square and 5 1/4” long, I can make them in jumbos for the bigger pens (7/8”) and they are 50 cents more each.

My knife blocks are 3/4” thick and 1 1/2” wide and 5” long and they are $15 ( burl is $25 and sapwood mix is $30)same size and I can make them bigger.

If anyone has an interest in Desert Ironwood please PM me, I can put 20 3/4” blanks in a small flat rate box and shipping is $5.95 anywhere in the US with delivery confirmation. I live in Arizona.

Or you can email me at or call me at 602-339-1273

I would be interested in pen blanks and possibly knife handle scales.

I have some in my Ebay store under seller name 60joseph2005 and if you don’t find anything you like there, please email me and I can send you pictures of several knife blocks and about 40 pen blanks I have here on the shelf.
