    PINE CONE KNIFE SCALES


    We developed these scales last spring and introduced them at "Blade Show" in June. They have proven to be immensely popular with makers telling us that they can't keep knives on their tables. One maker has used more than 30 sets of these scales since June and keeps coming back for more.

    "STIX"


    Another new product that we introduced this summer, this time at the "A.G. Russell Knife Event" in Rogers, Arkansas. These blocks consist of dyed and stabilized tree branch segments that are meticulously laid out in a mold and cast in Urethane resin. I have seen finished knives and they look great, unfortunately I don't have any photos to share at this time.


    These blocks are $50 each and measure approx. 1" x 1 1/2" x 4 3/4"​

    Banksia Pod Scales​

    Banksia Pods are a seed pod found mainly in Australia. They have great figure and are filled with holes that make them perfect candidates for casting in Urethane resins. The resulting slabs are very unique and quite eye catching.

    Banksia Pod Scales are $50 per set and measure approx. 5/16" x 1 1/2" x 5 1/4"

    Is the pine cone material fully saturated or is it suspended in the resin ?

    Thanks,

    The Pine Cone material is encapsulated in Urethane resin. It does not saturate the cone.
