These are pre-machined Curly Maple handle scales for our Sensei knife kit. Pre-machined handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex handle shape for this design. Curly Maple is widely known for its versatility, having many application uses. This highly desirable material is durable and rigid to make baseball bats yet flexible enough to make archery equipment. Our Curly Maple has been stabilized to further enhance its use and preserve its natural beauty. These stabilized blocks will produce scales or full handles; use this material to add a professional look to your next project.
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.
