I have a good bit of curly Purple heart. So it is out there. If you need some PM me. As far as birds eye or burly PH, nope, never seen it.

I just received some rare and exotic blanks from Gilmer Woods (gilmerwood.com). Most of the blanks you select from photos, and those are the ones you receive. Jim will also pick out the best blanks he has to send to you. They are graded and you pay according to the grade you choose. When you get on his sight, look for pen blanks - exotic woods. He has some woods from old stock that can no longer be imported into the USA. Being my first order, I did not get the show grade blanks until I new what the quality would be. They were beautiful!! Even my wife was impressed with the colors and grain patterns. I looked at the site last night for Purpleheart. He didn't have any burl, but he did have some highly figured pieces in odd sizes. ( not pen blanks, but larger pieces.) He has a lot of blanks in 1" x 12" size. If you cut these on your bandsaw from corner to corner, you can get 2 barrels out of a 2" length of stock. 6 complete pens out of a 12" blank. When you are buying high price blanks, that's stretching that blank a long way and cutting down your cost!! As far as the burl, I would call him and ask if it can be purchased. Jim S
