These are pre-machined Curly Maple handle scales for our DDR3 (curved bolster) folding knife kit. Pre-machined handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex handle shape for this design. Curly Maple is widely known for its versatility, having many application uses. This highly desirable material is durable and rigid, yet flexible. Our Curly Maple has been stabilized to further enhance its use and preserve its natural beauty.
Our pre-machined DDR3 handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the liner they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping and artistic embelishment. They are also undrilled to allow the builder precise placement control and to maximize fastener options. You can create step holes for use with the standard kit handle screws, or add mosaic pin wafers for a really nice finish effect. The choice is up to you. If you do not have a scroll saw to use for creating the required handle shape, or you just want to begin from an easier starting point, using these pre-machined scales will help you insure that your kit completion will be smooth and successful.
