Sorry mate I didn’t really explain that well..the last pic is the raw fork this fox was carved from..I’m trying to work out the species..you might be able to tell when you see it in the flesh????

That's a really nice Fox with the nicest band grooves ever. Awesome job.
I've cut into pecan that had that grayish color. The bark matches up too but don't know if you guys even have pecan there.
What ever it is it looks delicious.
The bark and figure ressemble hickory, maple (my guess), ash (runner up guess), or pecan.

No chance you remember where you harvested it? Could look and see what trees are standing.

Also... outstanding makery.

Haha..cheers mate ????

I'd have to look at it a little closer.....send it so I can get a better look!! :naughty: That is nice!
Cheers d but not this one..it's called for..if you want to do swap on another mate we can work something for a dsl natty????

Wow!
The craftsmanship on that fork is top notch.
I'm calling the dark areas spalting. And the spalted circles on both fork tips are jaw-droppers!
My guess on the tree species - Ash. But that's a guess.
Thanks kk..I think ash is a good contender

I do know the spot, now there's leaves on the trees a visit might help..90% are pine with a few birch..this was on the edge of the forest near the road..near an oak tree..it's not pine oak or birch lol
