I was thinking about cutting it up in 3/4 " x 3/4 " blanks but leaving them as long as possible. I don't need the blanks at this moment but Im glad to have them for later. No plans to sell them. Thanks for your adviceI agree with others, purpleheart, which I've heard some people call rosewood because it is hard and oily, but it isn't a true rosewood (genus dalbergia). I'd suggest keeping the stuff whole until you're ready to use it, nothing worse than having 50 pen blanks of something but needing a 5" x 5" chunk. Also probably not worth the effort to cut up for sale, not sure if this is something you were considering, just my 2 cents.
