These are pre-machined Wenge handle scales for our Gents Companion knife kit. Pre-machined handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex 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, which makes it ideal for use in sporting equipment and tool handles. Our Wenge wood offers a multitude of application uses. And using this as the star of your next knife handle project will be sure to help you make something worthy of showing off.
Our pre-machined knife handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle tang 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 fastening options. You can use standard pins, mosaic pins or a number of handle fastners. 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.
