    Fresh Sandalwood Oil Acquired from Mr Tajul Bakshi

    He doesn't deal in Sandal at all, but I was sure, he can provide with six tola pure sandal oil. Otherwise, the situation in India is known to us all. He graciously accomodated me and acquired oil from his friend for me. After many months, last day I received the package.

    Though the oil seems to be fresh and edgy, the scent is nice, and time will make it smooth and sober.

    Happy to have it.

    Sliced off a little bit from a baby king Filipino piece from @Habz786
    Little white bits are leftovers from me cutting into something last night and not realising I'd cleaned properly, so bits of it was scooped in along with the Filipino dust :Cautious:

    Today I received a call from my vendor from whom I acquire Musk Grains and Sandalwood to see him.

    I had requested him for dry Nepalese Musk grains and Sandalwood.

    There was the hunter as well, who made me see a plastic bag full of fake pods. Oh gosh! Artisanal pod, and home-baked grains. And grains smelt near to pure Musk. How difficult it is for a newbie and only grain buyers to know about the purity and authenticity of grains!

    Anyway, I acquired a few grams of Nepalese Musk.

    The following are fake pods with tolas of grains:

    Second, Mysore Sandalwood piece. Though I had requested for a piece of Ceylon Sandalwood 1 kg, I got a piece of Mysore instead. After a month one kg chunk would arrive.

    I have burnt such chunks in abundance till today:Cry::Cry:. The desire to distill rose and sandal is sky high now. But I am truly non technical and non scientific person. Yet I am trying hard.

    Much easier to get sandalwood in Pakistan , I see people selling but I just can’t get the proper paperwork from anybody in Pakistan, they have all offered faked paperwork.

    And today, with fake musk pods, I saw fake sandalwood. Polished and made aromatic. Again, not easy for a newbie to identify whether it is pure or not.

    I have learnt one thing: Things in hands is the only way to know about the authenticity and purity of anything. Pics are the best ways to deceive the beholders. At a distance, beauty and scent lie in the eyes and nose of beholder only.

    The chisel that I ordered arrived and initially I thought it was too big. Have sliced a chip up using it and it's great, think I now need a rubber mallet. Also I can't imagine that my neighbour is too impressed by the banging

    My new hand saw arrived too and is awful. I have 3 and one is just okay so I'm going to try and get a decent one at least and bin the rest
