Spalting
This is a fungal attack of the wood, either when the tree is
standing, or after it has been felled.
The Mycelium, roots of the fungus, spread out, from the point
of infection, through the wood, leaving black lines and random
patterns.
To achieve the desirable effects I usually leave a felled tree for
up to 2 years before cutting and kiln drying
, after which time it
is ready to create the finished product
.

Care of Knife

After using your Knife it is advisable to wash lightly in washing
up water, wipe off excess water and leave to dry in a vertical
position, allowing air to circulate around the knife.

The cell structure of the wood will absorb water and release
it under normal drying conditions.

To revive the knife reapply olive oil with a brush and leave to dry.
This should be done as and when necessary.
