Beautiful stabilized western maple burl knife blank 20 with incredible color and character. This blank has been fully stabilized with clear acrylic resin making it extremely solid and sound. It has great depth of tight burl figure and a color that ranges from a chocolate-brown to a lighter tan, highlighted with black-line spalting. With its unique beauty and characteristics, this blank makes our Imperial grade and is sure to impress. This blank is free from any noticeable defect. Few minor natural imperfections are often present and seen as the blank is surfaced. Bark inclusions and natural defects are inherent with all burl, and maple is no exception. These natural imperfections are great for mineral inlay/color epoxies, as fillers, and can also enhance the final book match pattern of the scaled pieces.

**  Please always review the specs and description to be sure the blank is the right one for your project.  **

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.
