This is one of my favorite blade shapes combined with just about my favorite handle material. Osage orange is a wood from the US mid-West. Where it is native it is regarded as a weed and is used for fence posts. It is one of the most durable woods around, and is the premier bow wood in the US. It is tough to work, but yields a silky surface and a lovely color.
