GONE!! Elizabeth and Miranda get hooked!
Got a couple pieces of that oh so purty rosewood left, so here's another one up for bids... we'll call it hook R for rosewood. Lemme see... this hook hits the scales at a L and its 7.5" long. The color is pretty close this time cause i used some pretty intense light. Oh, and this wood is so hard and smooth that it doesn't need any finish. I'll put finish on it if the high bidder so wishes, but i tell you this wood is really nice au natural or as we say up the crick... nekkid. What you don't see in the photo is that there is a thumb flat formed along the handle, akin to the one that you can more clearly see in the Lilac hook below.
Now the next hook is a local Spokane wood. Spokane is known as the "Lilac City" and there are quite a few bushes around. This hook is made of lilac wood and its a real beauty. We'll call this one hook L for Lilac. It's shorter(6.5") than the rosewood hook, but the grip is phenomenal at least for MY hand, and it tips the scale at 7mm (between K and L on the Bates gauge). I love the contrasting colors in this little beauty.
I'll entertain bids (maybe sing to them?) on these two beauties till next Monday, March 5 10pm Pacific time.
