These are pre-machined Walnut 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. Walnut is an extremely popular wood amongst wood workers. It finishes extremely well and is very durable. The most common application uses for walnut speaks volumes to its versatility. From gunstocks to interior paneling, there are no limits on what you can do this material. Walnut has a natural beauty that is unmistakable. With the proper amount of work, you can turn your next project into a prized possession.
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.
