Product Information:

Woodcraft has brought together an exceptional stock of domestic and exotic hardwood knife scale blanks – each piece selected for its striking figure. 1" thick solid stock or matching 3/8" pieces. Milled to sizes that make the knife making process easy and efficient with minimal waste.

Leopardwood (Roupala brasiliense) is also known as Northern Silky Oak, Australian Silky Oak, Selena and Louro Faia. The wood itself is a reddish-brown with darker brown “lace” patterning. Lacewood has the most pronounced figure and displays the largest flecks when perfectly quartersawn due to the large rays which run perpendicular to the growth rings. The grain is straight with coarse texture. Works well with hand and machine tools, but there is moderate blunting effect on cutters and a tendency to bind in saws. Glues well, stains and polishes, with care, to an excellent finish. Country of origin: South America
