Coolibah knife
Coolibah burl1
snakewood knife handle

The first Sheffield made knife on the left has Red Coolibah knife burl knife scales. Burls result for the tree undergoing some form of stress during it’s life and it results in the case of the Coolibah tree in distinctive patters and whirls of red. Each piece is different and is a natural work of art. Coolibah burls are harvested throughout Austarlia typically in flood plains or near bodies of water. The other wood illustrated is snakewood which again is a beautifully patterned wood. Snakewood comes from a small tree found in the forests of Central and South America it changes it’s colour as it is processed and eventually turns reddish brown with the distinctive snake scale appearance.
