This is a beautiful & rugged 4.25" long piece of tough aged ponderosa pitchwood. Perfectly shaped for your hidden tang knife creation. The diameter at the top is 1.25" and a whopping 1.625" at the base. I use these in the knives I make and they really shine with a clear coat finish. (I use boiled linseed oil.) The gold, amber and brown colors of this unique wood takes decades to form! The handle in the photos is the handle you will receive. Shipping is FREE and to the US only please.
