HANDLE MATERIAL DESCRIPTION
(click here to see more images from this item's individual page)


This is a beautiful pair of handle making scales for making a knife.

This is a set of naturally occurring buffalo horn. They will, at random, have red streaks going through them which gives an exceptionally handsome look. Please see the second photo for examples of the various scales to get an idea of the variety of patterns. Selected at our choice and at random. They look very impressive and will make a gorgeous handle for your knife. We have these custom made for our store and you wont find these anywhere else.

You get 2 scales with each set.

Dimensions:
Length: 5 inches approximately
Width: 1.5 inches approximately
Height: 3/8 inch approximately (Thickness varies with material texture)

Note: This item is made with naturally occurring animal material. Each piece will be unique and may vary in dimensions, color, thickness or texture.

Tips for working with this buffalo horn:
  • As buffalo horn is a very dense material, the colored dye is only able to penetrate the very outer layer of the horn (1-2mm deep approximately). If thinning the scales is required, it is recommended that you sand the back-side of the scales (facing your blades handle), to leave as much of the outside of the buffalo horn as untouched as possible.
  • When shaping your handle, it is recommended to leave as much of the flat, colored outer surface of the buffalo horn as untouched as possible. In this manner you will retain as much color as possible in your final handle.
  • Sometimes the pieces may require sanding to become perfectly flat. A standard belt sander works well for this job.
  • When working with buffalo horn, any sanded or cut portions will turn a dull gray color. This is normal, and is not the final color. The final step of buffing and polishing buffalo horn is a must, as it will darken and become glossy with a brilliant sheen.




MOSAIC PIN DESCRIPTION
(click here to see more images from this item's individual page)


Our mosaic pins are hand-crafted by a veteran knife-maker in the USA.

Please note: Our customer service representatives are not be able to measure pin hole sizes or answer pin-related questions about our various knife blanks. Also, the pin hole sizes and locations in our blanks can vary from batch to batch. Thank you for your understanding and respecting this.

As a second note: It is possible to drill any knife blanks pin holes larger (or create your own pin hole locations). You simply need to use drill bits intended for drilling metal, which are capable of drilling through hardened high carbon steel. This method is recommended because you be able will get the exact fit you are looking for when using our mosaic pins.

Specifics:

This mosaic pin is 3/16" in diameter.

You will receive one piece of mosaic pin stock. Each piece comes in approximately 5.8" length.

We use only the highest quality brass, copper and steel.

If your knife handle is 0.75"-0.9" thick, this mosaic piece will make 6 pins when cut, good for several knives.
If your knife handle is 0.95"-1.15" thick, this mosaic piece will make 5 pins when cut, good for several knives.
If your knife handle is 1.2"-1.4" thick, this mosaic piece will make 4 pins when cut, good for several knives.

Our mosaic pins have been vacuum-pumped to remove air bubbles. The resin is pulled in with a high-end vacuum, which pulls the glue down, and removes any small bubbles. The pins are cured afterward and lastly polished and burrs removed.

The center of the mosaic pin is filled with clear epoxy resin. The filling will appear dark when initially received, however light will be able to shine through when you are done cutting this down to small pieces for your knife handle. The transparency will become evident with the smaller length pieces.

You wont get any "rattlers" with our high quality mosaic pins (a "rattler" is where you have loose pieces inside the mosaic pin due to inadequate vacuum pumping out of air bubbles prior to the curing stage).

A penny is shown for a size comparison. Penny not included.
