Not at all sir.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your level of service. I’ll most certainly continue to shop with you as often as possible.

The KOA we purchased was beautiful.  No complaints at all. Shipping was fast and communication was great. The Shokwood, as well, never seems to disappoint and I appreciate the multiple pictures that I can see when buying individual blocks.  We also took a chance on the "backyard wood" and love it.  Its a great value for the price.

The guys who built the guitar were blown away by the Koa, I had several emails during the build with them praising it, one even said they think it was the best looking guitar they have ever built.  It has gotten a lot of attention on their social media accounts.

(editor note: see the guitar in the Gallery)

I have ordered koa from Shelton Pacific multiple times. The last time I ordered two blocks on a Friday night and my blocks arrived at my door first thing Monday morning. Steve is always fast at shipping and always very friendly on the phone. I have looked all over and have never found a site that consistently has the quality of Shelton Pacific. Steve only carries the very best. His block are stabilized very well. If you have ever bought poorly stabilized wood, you know the frustration. He always post 2 pictures, one of each side, so you know what you are going to get. If you are looking for the best koa on earth, Shelton Pacific is the only choice.

Thanks for the great Koa.  These pieces are worth more to me than gold and I don't even want to use them on knife handles.  Not doing anyone any good hidden under my mattress though - ha ha.  I'll buy more... lot's more.

Got the blocks today, two days early, and beautiful as always!!

I made the knife handle with a piece of curly maple burl I bought from you. I have been making knives for about five years. A friend of mine, Jason Knight, a Master Smith, inspired me to get into the art. I do not forge my own blades; my craft is the handles and the leather. Jason has forged several blades for me, and I often buy knife blanks from various distributors also. Let me know if this knife is worthy of being featured. I am looking at your exhibition grade koa blocks, but may need to craft my first koa handle from one of your hobby varieties to get the feel for that particular species. I will be purchasing those from you soon.

Thank you for all your help with my order above. You guys are flat out great! Because of your help I received my order so quickly and was able to get one sold knife out the door and the other one well on its way to completion. This was hands on customer service and I really appreciate it. The knives came out great. Pics will follow. /this is a business of nice, helpful people. That Shelton Pacific can stand out among good suppliers says a lot. Thank you for being one of my suppliers. My web page is baltimoresteelknifemakers.com.
