Description

These Claro Walnut Burl Knife Blanks have a beautiful mix of deep brown/black and light brown/red color. The burl figure is intense and solid. These are not impregnated with acrylic resin. They are oversized, unsurfaced single blanks not scaled into 2 pieces. Claro walnut burl is an amazing species though it is prone to natural imperfections such as bark seams and surface checks. As with all of our knife blanks, differentiating the grades within a particular species is an essential part of our quality control process; and many pieces don’t make the cut. These Claro walnut knife blanks are graded according to the stock they’re derived from, like any selection of products, and offered as AAA. The two sizes we’re making available are:

SM – 1 1/8″ x 1 3/4″ x 4 1/2″

REG – 1 1/8″ x 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″

**Please note the square size may vary 1/8″ +/-  and 1/4″ +/- in length**

For larger pieces, to be utilized for a similar purpose but not listed here, check out our Turning Wood or Slab categories for other pieces that may better serve your needs.

Our Process

Our unique way of pressure cooking and kiln drying the wood allows for the least amount of volumetric shrinkage and maximum natural stability of each piece. This proprietary process was developed over 40+ years; many of which was through simple trial and error. Today, through our process using specific temperatures, psi and durations of time, we consistently produce some of the straightest, internally sound and beautiful burl and figured hardwood blanks on the market. Our large manufacturing customers truly depend on this consistency for their pool cue, guitar or knife blanks. Try one of our products and see how we compare to others.
