    These arrived in fine condition (apart from one moldy-looking nut). They’re exceptionally tough. I have very, very sharp carving tools and I still found that it was quite the task to make a mark on these things. If you’ve ever carved a peach pit, these have a very similar texture and hardness. (I’d actually say a bit harder.)

    After doing some more research online, I read that the nuts are also sensitive to water, in that they can warp and crack when exposed too long, so this is something you might consider, depending what you want to do.

    I think the largest drawback for me is that I do not own a bandsaw: cutting the nuts into either slices or squaring them off would be excellent since their natural shape is difficult to work with. You may also want to own power carving tools for these. I found that my traditional knives, which want to slice and shave, don’t work well — the more I work with these, the more I want something that will simply grind and abrade.

    I bought these thinking they would make for grate carving material when I carve necklace pendants. From what I read it is much harder then avocado pits. I am happy to say it is lol though I can’t use my carving blade to carve my drimel seems to be cleaning them up nicely. They really do look like ivory underneath the brown. I can’t be more happy with my purchase or the delivery time.
