Coolabah Burl Knife Handle Block, Extreme Grade
Solid wood handle block, from Australian Coolabah tree.
The pieces are from a burl, a deformation or growth on a tree resulting in twisted grains.
These twisted pieces, when still solid enough to use are prized by wood turners, knife makers and others looking for unique pieces of wood.
Each burl will be different and often within the same burl the scales or blocks cut will display different textures.
The block will look similar to the photo but not that exact scale. Burl is a natural material which includes cracks and voids, some of these may have to be filled with super glue or epoxy resin during and after shaping.
