These are pre-machined Wenge knife handle scales for our Bearclaw Trapper knife kit. Pre-machined knife handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex knife handle shape for this design. Sometimes referred to as African rosewood, Wenge is an amazingly unique wood with its dark brown to black coloring and striking figure. Wenge can also have lighter brown streaks which gives the wood an unusual, yet delightful appearance. It is also very tough and has a very high shock resistance. Knife handle making is one of the many common uses for the extremely versatile Wenge. Using these as the star of your next knife handle project will help you create something worthy of showing off.
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 kit completion will be smooth and successful.
