These are pre-machined Purpleheart knife handle scales for our Bearclaw Trapper slip joint knife kit. Pre-machined knife handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex knife handle shape for this design. Purpleheart is a highly desirable and expensive wood. Knife handle making is one of the many common uses for the extremely versatile Purpleheart. This wood is known for being very dense and water resistant. It is ranked one of the hardest and most durable woods known. Using Purpleheart for your next project will not only “wow” your friends but it will create something to cherish for a lifetime.
Our pre-machined knife handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle liners they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping and artistic embellishment. They are also undrilled to allow the builder precise placement control and to maximize fastening options. You can use standard pins, mosaic pins or a number of knife handle fasteners. The choice is up to you. If you do not have a scroll saw to use for creating the required knife handle shape, or you just want to begin from an easier starting point, using these pre-machined knife handle scales will help you insure that your knife kit completion will be smooth and successful.
