Question about green sycamore.

Al Crandall
>Recently I roughed out a 14" natural edge bowl and hollowed to completion a 6 1/2" tall egg from green sycamore. I had to spend way more time sharpening my tools than usual. Is sycamore noted for being hard on cutting edges? I'd compare this stuff to mesquite.
