Stabilized Maple Burl Blocks (6 x 1.25 x 1 inch +/- 1/8)
These premium blocks of maple burl are nothing short of gorgeous. We would be thrilled to use them all in our own knives.
Maple burl is like a snowflake, you can see consistencies of shape and color in the photos on this page, but each block can be slightly different. Your block(s) may have different tones, darker figure, or tighter patterns, depending on the block.
These blocks are stabilized, and come at a minimum size of 6" x 1.25" x 1" (+/- 1/8). Stabilized wood is a process that fills pores of the wood grain with resin, leading to blocks that are moisture-resistant, making them great for kitchen knives. It also reduces chipping and warping of materials.
They are roughly cut to the specified dimensions and may be a bit larger than the size listed.
