But beware not to get too close as it may lash out at you at any moment with a soft and slobbery appendage. You won’t know what licked you. lol.

This is a very sensitive wood, in both smell and the pure love of a rare wood.

I would not pretend to cut this wood, but use it as it is, a whole piece. It is very rare, and not normally seen with the “nose knot”.

But, with a bit of Kibbles and Bits, you can cause the sensitive “knot” part to move away, allowing you to do what you want with the remaining parts of the wood.
