    I have 5 small USPS boxes with 5 - 7 dried, walnut blocks in each to give away. They are all at least an 1" thick and 1 1/2" wide. Nothing fancy, just plain unsteamed, black walnut.

    I will send these out to the first 5 to respond and message me an address.

    GeneK - You are a good man. I'm sure a few makers will step forward and accept your generous offer. Acts like this solidify my thoughts about knife makers being the salt of the earth.

    I have all the walnut that I will use in a lifetime. I do not need any more at this time. But, I wanted to tell you thank you for being a generous fellow.

    BTW: The block in the lower left looks killer!

    I'll chime in also - Moves like this is what makes the knifemaking folks such great folk. The wood on the left side is REALLY nice figure. I've got plenty of plain walnut that I cut from a tree back in '91, but nothing like that really nice wood. Somebody's going to be VERY happy.

    Thanks everyone. This forum quickly became one of my favorites because of all the people here who are willing to give help to all of us starting out. Hopefully I can suck up enough of the knowledge here to help others out someday. Until then, I have 3 boxes of the walnut left.

    Gene,

    I love me some walnut, and think it's great that you are helping out! I'd love a box, and if you're interested I have a crap ton of curly maple that I need to cut up, they are only about 1 inch thick. Once I cut them up I'll send ya a box in return! IMG_20171002_041508_610.jpg

    BMOC, I'll get a box sent to you. All the boxes are spoken for. When I have more, I'll post here with what I have.

    Really nice walnut. It makes me think of the black walnut trees on my Mom and Dads old home place. I sure hated to see that place sold but it had gotten to be too much for them to keep up at the time!! Sometimes it is funny what triggers memories!!
