Our standard wood handle materials include maple and box elder burl, and birch composites (in red/brown or grey/black colour).  Other wood materials can be sourced for custom orders.  We also use various semi-precious stones, antler and bone, including fossilized bone. We only use ecologically sustainable sourced handle materials. We stabilize our own handles (resin injected under extreme vacuum and pressure) to minimize shrinkage, warping, cracking or discoloration over time.
