I should add, that small knife I made for BC has real Osage burl, rare as hen's teeth. I didn't get more than a couple of pounds or so of actual burl out of that shipment of probably 75 or so pounds of wood.  :sad:
I usually cut my own wood but saw an ad for some burl for sale on another site. I search for Osage burls on my hunting and scouting outings, but to no avail. What appears to be burl on the Osage trees is usually just nice grained wood.  ???
99.99% of Osage is pretty boring when it comes to character and contrast. Only the gnarly crooked stuff has any character in the grain. One interesting fact, knots in Osage wood don't let loose like they do in pine and other woods. They stay tight, no cracks or separation.

I'm kinda gettin' the itch and shakes for a new Andrews knife.  :crazy2 :crazy2  Don't guess I'm ever going to get the gut hook he said he was making.....  :roll:

 ;D ;D  Gotta try to think up another design and shape for one.  :wink:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Still looking forward to the gut hook.  The osage & shrapnel in the handle sounds cool.  O0
