Texas Ebony Knife Scales TE-731
0.5" x 1.7" x 12"
This is a set of cut pieces of Texas Ebony. They're intended for knife scales, and we've left them extra long so that you can select the best grain patterns for use in your knife making. This set is long enough to produce two 5" long sets of knife scales.
This set of knife scales has a beautiful mix of heartwood and sapwood. The contrast is striking! Note that the sapwood is a bit soft and will require some TLC in the finishing process. There is also a sapwood crack that you probably will want to stabilize with CA glue. I've discounted a bit for this crack.
They are bookmatched, such that the pieces of wood are mirror images of each other. Each scale is 1/2" thick, so that the matched pair is just over 1" thick.
I take lots of photos, so please scroll down past the first three photos for additional images.
