Sky Blue Burls and Swirls Knife Scale Block

Each of these knife scale blocks is designed to be resawn into a bookmatched set of knife scales. The blocks are made from highly-figured wood with natural voids that have been filled with brilliantly dyed resin, which is cast and cured under a pressure/vacuum process to ensure a void-free product. Working with wood/resin hybrid is very similar to working with ordinary wood. The resin portion tends to work down slightly faster than the wood, so take a bit of extra care when sanding and shaping. Once shaped, the resin is very durable, resistant to cracking or chipping, and finishes beautifully!

Love it
I was a little hesitant to get started. I'm just a novice. But after I finished it was beautiful. I definitely will make several more knives with this material

Not impressed with my Handle Material.
When I received the sky blue burl knife handle it looked fine. But as soon as I started to work with it the resin started to separated from the wood as I kept going it completely separated. Needless to say I had to take the reson drill holes in it and epoxied pins. Then drilled holes in wood and epoxied the two pieces back together. I told my client what happened and im sure it will break sooner or later. I didn't charge my client for the handle so I am out $150.00. I don't believe I will be buying any more material from Rockler. Ill go back to my old vinders.

is this handle dishwasher safe?
matt s on Nov 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. As a custom knife maker, I always tell people that quality cutlery should never be placed in dishwasher. Handle materials that are porous and laminated are susceptible to damage from extreme temperature changes and high moisture environments. Like a dishwasher. Hand wash with mild soap, and dry immediately.
