Texas Ebony Knife Scales TE-754
0.45" x 1.7" x 5"
This is a set of Texas Ebony knife scales that will make a beautiful knife handle. They are bookmatched, such that the pieces of wood are mirror images of each other. Each scale is .45" thick, so that the matched pair is 0.9" (or 7/8") thick. These are larger than standard knife scale dimensions, giving you the opportunity to select the best grain and color for your knife handle.
This pair of knife scales is almost entirely the dark brown heartwood that Texas Ebony is famous for. The heartwood color is very dark overall, pretty much as dark as I ever see Texas Ebony getting. There is the thinnest sliver of ivory-colored sapwood along one edge -- such a small amount that you could probably not preserve it in the finished handle unless you specifically aim for that. It will make a gorgeous knife handle.
These scales have been air-dried to 8-10% moisture content. I take lots of photos, so please see the photos for close-ups of these knife scales.
