A new Resin 4oz Kit from the USA.BladeBond Ultra is an unadulterated high performance Polyamine based epoxy system designed to give superior results under extreme conditions. BladeBond Ultra exhibits outstanding permanence on a wide variety of surfaces including hard to bond substrates like oily woods and some thermoplastics. BladeBond Ultra will NEVER shrink and is formulated to retain flexibility under all environmental circumstances. Ultra is measured and mixed in a convenient 1:1 ratio by volume, and has a pot life of 45 min, at 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Usable cure is achieved in 12 hours, but can be force cured at 125 degrees in 2 hours.. When fully cured BladeBond Ultra can be machined, drilled and tapped, and is totally immune to, and unaffected by water, rot and most common solvents and chemicals. We have tested this product in our workshop and it works especially well when bonding Woolly Mammoth Ivory to Damascus Fultang blades. Any excess resin can be removed with Acetone before it cures.
Size 125mm x 40mm x 28mm.Botanical name: Quercus roburOrigin: EnglandDryness: Kiln driedThe picture shown is lighter than the stock. Inky black with a significantly higher density and hardness than ordinary oak, bog oak was created when prehistoric forests were submerged under water and silt in anaerobic conditions thousands of years ago. This stock has been carbon dated and is at least 3300 years old.The black colour is a chemical reaction between the tannin in the oak and ferrous compounds in the water.Bog oak is one of the most difficult woods to dry. A very large percentage of material is lost in the drying process and this largely explains the price.

It is a distortion of the grain pattern itself. Prized for its beauty, it is used frequently in the manufacturing of knife handles and musical instruments, especially guitars.
