These are pre-machined Cherry handle scales for our Western Skinner knife kit. Pre-machined handle scales will greatly simplify the process of roughing-in the complex handle shape for this design. Cherry is renowned for its natural beauty and versatility. Not only is Cherry widely used to make furniture, musical instruments and handle applications, it is also used to cook and smoke foods with. Cherry is tough and durable but machines like a dream. Making this the star of your next project will not only turn heads but it will make something to cherish for a lifetime.
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.
