We combine shipping when possible but since we sell so many different items with so many different shipment options there is no single profile that can work for everything. Also, and this is very important, in order to maintain our status we must ship within one day.

We have found that because of the high weight of ironwood the best option for shipping is nearly always USPS priority mail flat rate whether the shipment is domestic or international. For small items that we have listed as first class mail, those can be combined into flat rate boxes for a savings. Small flat rates can sometimes be consolidated into medium flat rate boxes. Medium flat rate boxes usually do not combine, they are already the best shipping option. Sometimes FEDEX is the best option but generally only when we are shipping to the east coast and the box is heavier than medium flat rate. Usually people buy all they want and we refund the extra amount they have paid for shipping. If you aren't comfortable doing that we understand and you can write to us asking that we make a listing for exactly the items you are interested in and we will make a special listing and send the link to you.



Desert Ironwood – Olneya Tesota
All international orders are shipped at full purchase value. We cannot and will not lower the value to avoid taxes. We are aware that tax rates can be high in some countries but we can’t afford to run the risk. Please don’t ask.

We use a grading system in order to sell blanks that are different in quality instead of mixing all qualities together into one box. Our standard knife handle size is 5.2 x 1.7 x 1.2 (sizes can vary slightly) and come in boxes of 38 blanks for domestic shipments. For international shipments we put as many into a medium flat rate box up to 20 pounds as possible (usually 36-38 blanks) because this is the maximum weight for shipping internationally with medium flat rate. The information below describes how we sort the blanks. We always stand 100% behind our blanks and if you are not satisfied, they may be returned with no questions asked. Upon request pictures and/or samples are available that show the overall quality of each grade.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: IRONWOOD, EVEN MORE THAN MOST WOODS, IS SUBJECT TO FLAWS SUCH AS CHECKS, VOIDS, PITS, AND CRACKS. YOU CAN EXPECT THAT IN A BOX OF EVEN GRADE A BLANKS SOME WILL HAVE SOME MINOR FLAWS. Minor cracks and voids can be easily repaired using CA glue or epoxy.

Grade A Blanks – These are top quality blanks, high figured and clean. These have little or no flaw. The highest figured wood is usually near the sapwood and near branches and diseased parts of the tree. If I threw out all the Grade A blanks with a tiny flaw there would not be much left in that category. So if you like high figure, you need to embrace some slight flaws also. Grade A blanks will have a combination of straight grain and swirly pattern. Most ironwood is straight grain so you can count on over 50% of the blanks being straight grain. May have small flaws of less than 5% of the overall blank.

Grade B Blanks – These are pretty nice blanks, usually with some small detail that makes it less than top grade. It may be the coloring is a little off, or there is a dark or light area. Most of these are figured. May have a small flaw of less than 8% overall. We only offer a generic version of this blank where the photos are not of the actual blank. We always clearly state when the photos are not of the actual blanks.

Grade C Blanks- These blanks will not have much figure. Most of them are just plain, smudged, or have a large dark or light area. These are suitable if you do not desire high figure and want a low price. They still make excellent knife handles despite the low figure. They may have a small flaw of less than 8% overall. We only offer a generic version of this blank where the photos are not of the actual blank. We always clearly state when the photos are not of the actual blanks.

Flawed Blanks – These blanks can be figured or plain and always have at least one flaw, but not over 15% flawed overall. Some of these blanks are really quite nice aside from the flaw. Generally these blanks are higher figure and nicer color than the Grade C blanks. I don’t recommend you buy them unless you are willing to repair or work around the flaw. Not for everyone but a great value if you are up to the challenge. These are great for hybrid scales.
Yellow/gold: These blanks are very low to no figure but are uniformly light in color. When polished to a very high sheen these blanks resemble marble. Grade A only, 5% or less flaw.

Dark blanks: These blanks are dark in color, sometimes solid dark and sometimes with light streaks. Beautiful wood, very popular. Grade A only with less than 5% flaw.

Sapwood blanks: These are a combination of high figure and sapwood. The most beautiful wood is near the outside of the trunk, just inside the sapwood. These are usually the most striking wood from the ironwood tree. Spectacular high figure wood combined with a lovely sapwood offset makes fantastic carvings.


We have been selling desert ironwood (olneya tesota) on E-Bay since 2012 and have steadily built the business over the years. We started out selling just figurines but soon moved into raw wood for carvers, knife, and pen makers. We pride ourselves on our attention to the quality of the wood we sell, our quick and safe shipping, and our quick response to any questions our clients may have. We ship worldwide with the exception of China because of problems with customs officials in China. Our number one priority is customer satisfaction.

Please feel free to write us anytime for special requests, combined shipping rates, or any other questions you may have.
