Madrona Knife Scales Md60
0.5" x 1" x 5"
This is a set of Pacific Madrone knife scales that will make a beautiful knife handle. The wood is a light peach color with darker peach undertones. Madrona tends to have a lot of color variation throughout, and we think these will make a gorgeous knife handle.
The wood has been air-dried to under 10% moisture content. Thanks to the air-drying process, they have retained their full color depth and contrast. The wet photo shows you a preview of the finished knife handle.
Some of our knife blanks will have surface blemishes from the sawblade; this will sand off easily.
About the Tree
This Madrona tree lived a long and healthy life on San Juan Island, Washington. It died naturally and was harvested in the course of good forest management. It was standing a while before being harvested, so there is a bit of spalting throughout that adds to its beauty. Not all pieces have spalting, but quite a few have black-line spalting and added color from mineralization streaks.
