If it is Ironwood, you will have fun practicing your tool sharpening skills. That stuff is a nightmare on tools.

BTW, I just vowed not to speculate on tree species ever again based on my incorrect comments on another thread, HOWEVER, I made some knife handles a long time ago with wood that looked just like that and they called it Ironwood. (Might as well been Ebony, for as hard as it was)

Just sayin’...
