What is the best piece of wood you have ever had the pleasure of putting on a knife?

Ill start, Redwood burl supplied by burlsource.

Pictures welcomed!

Photo doesn't do it justice...

Redwood Burl from Pop's. I visited his place back in 2011 and got about 15 awesome pieces and scale sets from him. I was like a kid in a candy store. Need to go visit him again. He's got stuff he doesn't even remember where he got it. Wife said she would not let me go alone!

Many different woods on different knives and there is so much variation that some abundant renewable & common woods can be amazing after stabilization.
California Buckeye comes to mind first, Maple in all of it's variations and Red flame ash, plus many more

I still cant get over buckeye. I used g10 for my first few then I got some buckeye burl and haven't used g10 much since then. Natural material has such an amazing beauty to it.
