This knife scale set is 2 pieces of bookmatched lilac wood for turning a knife handle. Bookmatched knife scales are cut from the same piece of wood so the grains of the two pieces of wood mirror each other.

Lilac wood is a very dense (hard) wood, comparable to Bubinga or Hickory in hardness. Slight interlocking grain with very fine texture. Light pink to lavender coloration throughout the heartwood. Sapwood is creamy to light pink. Excellent turning wood but prone to end checking during drying. Distinctive floral (lilac) scent when being worked.

Each knife scale set is unique and rare with good coloring and figuring in the grain. With these wood blanks, you can produce a truly one-of-a-kind knife handle.

These knife scales are 1-1/2″ wide, 5″ long, and  1/4″ thick. They are air dried and flattened and may need additional conditioning for you to begin working the wood and creating your unique lilac wood knife handle.
