Schrade 858 with Stabilized Buckeye Burl Wood Handles

Post by Jeffinn » Thu Jun 23, 2022 2:07 am

I recently purchased some stabilized exotic wood slabs to be used as knife handles. The first one out of the gate was the stabilized buckeye burl material. Great color and patterns and just really nice looking.
I've got a few other options in the wings so I'm looking forward to adding a few new materials to my knives.
