These are pre-machined Padauk 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. Padauk is a very popular wood amongst woodworkers due to its unique coloration and durability. Coloration can vary from a pale orange to a deep brownish red and can darken over time or with exposure to UV light. It’s easily worked and finishes, glues and turns very well. Choose Padauk for your next project to make something truly unique.
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.
