Curly Birch Wood Knife Scales x 2 pieces (Extreme Grade)

Curly birch is a pale hardwood, growing only in a narrow, cold band north in Scandinavia and Russia.

The "curly" in curly birch describes the twisted, curled grains.

Curly birch has a solid texture and easy to work, the twisted grain strucuture does not mean it will crack or split easily.

Traditionally considered an exclusive material and used for knife handles and other "show" pieces.

 

Curly birch comes in 3 grades, based on the level of play and twists in the wood.

This is the "Extreme" grade, the finest available pieces.

Each grade makes an amazing piece when sanded and sealed.

It is more a question of how figured you prefer the wood;

the Standard grade having more white birch and the Exctreme grade have more of the colored "curly" grains and imperfections that make the pieces unique.

 

 The set has 2 scales, each scale is about 8-10 mm x 40-45 mm x 120 mm in size.

    Full of pattern and contrast even better if used with pine tar oil to give the high lights; one of my favourite types of wood too use. These scales usually come flat and even.
