    I just typed a long winded response Steve but then it crashed and lost it all. So the short answer is Thanks, I will look at other orientations and woods.

    Looks like Lignum vitae to me... that's some hard, dense stuff.

    The wood ones have been fine for me, I sanded the edges down a bit, they have held up fine, I mainly only use my RR for pruning so doesn’t get dinged up or anything.

    How about Handroanthus, called “Ipe” in the construction world. Find a contractor in your area building a deck with it and grab some off-cuts. Stuff’s incredible.
