These are pre-machined Lacewood 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. Lacewood is an exotic wood and is highly sought after by woodworkers because of its striking appearance. The colors typically range from a light pinkish tan to an almost orange-tinged brown color. It is extremely easy to work with, responding well to stains, gluing and finishing. Lacewood is used in high-end furniture, cabinetry, musical instruments and inlays.
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.
