I will keep this page as up to date as possible on the various woods I have on hand. The standard woods offered in the base price of all knives are plain grained accacia or eucalyptus with all others offered as upgrades.
There is grade 1, grade two and exhibition grade offered as options for all knives with the micarta options priced as grade 1
Grade one blocks are a US$35 and will be any of the blocks that are on hand that are representatvive of the species. NZ natives and exotics plus some of the imported blocks that dont meet the higher grade
NZ native woods of rimu, matai, rata, or swamp kauri.
NZ grown macrocarpa, eucalyptus, walnut and oak.
The canvas micarta for a grippy finish or the paper micarta to give a hard smooth finish.
Grade two blocks have very good grain, contrast and or colour or a combination of any two of these qualifiers and will be US$40 to $50.
These blocks are top of the line exhibition grade and priced in the US$55 - $80 and will enhance any knife either on their own or in combination with a bolster of complimentary wood, horn or non ferrous metal of brass, copper, bronze or nickel silver.
