Huisache Knife Scales H-788
0.9" x 0.9" x 13"
This is a set of two Huisache knife scales that will make a beautiful knife handle. They are bookmatched, such that the pieces of wood are mirror images of each other (see photo 1, bookmatched wood scales). Both pieces have some surface scorching from a saw blade (sorry about that!) - it will sand right off.
There is very pretty grain in this set, with a beautiful branch knot present throughout. The block is about 90% heartwood, 10% sapwood. It is primarily the bright rosy/reddish-brown of Huisache heartwood with a strong, gently undulating grain pattern. There is a wedge of sapwood on one block; it is an attractive gray coloring with several interesting partially frass-filled bug boreholes.
