Beautiful stabilized western maple burl knife blank 37 with incredible color and spalted character. This blank has been stabilized with a clear acrylic resin. It’s been surfaced on two sides to show its amazing spalted, large-eye burl figure and color that ranges from a deep amber-brown to golden honey. There is a slight curve in the blank. Our pressure cooked/kiln dried blanks are sent to our acrylic stabilizing partner straight and true, however at times they return with a slight bend or curve due to the impregnation process on an industrial scale. The curves are marginal in proportion and the over-sized width usually compensates for it. Many times, we’ve heard a curve being incorporated into the design of a blade handle or pistol grip. There is still plenty of meat on the bone of stabilized western maple burl knife blank 37, and this blank will be at least 2″ wide when squared up. Truly a wonderful piece and surely to impress.

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.
