These are pre-machined Sapele handle scales for our Lineman Trapper folding knife kit. Pre-machined handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex handle shape for this design. Sapele is commonly used as a mahogany substitute because of its toughness. The wide range of its use includes making veneers, furniture, boats and knife handle applications. Its extended list of uses speaks as to how versatile Sapele is, making it a viable feature to accent your next project.
Our pre-machined Lineman Trapper 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, you can 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.
