These are pre-machined Wenge handle scales for our Ranger Lockback folding 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. This makes it ideal for knife handles. Using these as the star of your next knife handle project will help you create something worthy of showing off.
Our pre-machined Ranger Lockback 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.
