These are pre-machined Yellowheart 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. Ranging from pale to golden yellow, Yellowheart gets its name from its vibrant yellow coloring. Sometimes it is referred to as Pau Amarello, which means “yellow wood” in Portuguese. It’s a pleasure to work with, responding well to both machine and hand tools and is commonly found in flooring, furniture, accents and turned objects. Using our Yellowheart scales in your next project will be sure to make something truly worth showing off.
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.
