Padauk Knife Scales

Rating:

Cut from strong, moderately heavy padauk, these knife blanks provide excellent stability and a brilliant red color that has earned padauk the informal name ''vermillion.'' Padauk's reddish orange coloring darkens over time to a purplish brown, but the darkening can be slowed with the use of UV-inhibiting finishes. Good natural luster makes these blanks an excellent choice for almost any knife handle.

Padauk Knife scales
Beautiful wood, first time I have used Padauk. I just used them on a Bowie knife blank I purchased elsewhere. By the time. Got to the wire wool stage for final finish it looked like glass with a pattern! I also bought a 1/2" x 3" x 24" piece I am currently carving a Celtic Love Spoon out of it. Definitely on my love list of woods.

Great matched pair
Great matched pair of blanks. For the folding knife kit I purchased, the scales were about 2X too thick, so there was a lot of excess to be sanded away. Very good wood grain and finished well

The color is a bit loud for knife scales, yet I have a blade that will shine with these scales.
