Something without any or as few as possible open vessels or rays that Taliban 
germs could hide in would be hygienically appropriate. I think that probably 
excludes iroko. Box would be great and North Heigham Sawmills in Norwich 
would probably mail order.

Forum
I would appreciate your thoughts on this: My local butcher has this family 
heir loom of an old cleaver (possibly three generations). The handle is 
severely worn and the tang and rivets holding the wooden handle sections in 
place now protrude rather uncomfortably. I am reasonably confident that the 
old wooden handle is made of Box, but I have hells bells job of finding some 
seasoned pieces of sufficient size to offer as a replacement. However, I have 
just been given a large piece of very well seasoned Iroko (its actually from 
a park bench which is being renovated). My question is this: Would Iroko be 
sufficiently durable to be used as a butcher's cleaver? 
 
Thanks in advance
