---------------- FULL TANG HANDLE MATERIALS----------------

Dark Paka
This wood is extremely durable and well suited for rigorous field use.
It is stabilized, and retains color and finish very well.
A great choice for the outdoorsman.


Light Paka
This handle material has all the same qualities as the Dark Paka wood,
but has a lighter color and more contrast in the grain.


Ebony
Ebony is almost black in color. It is very hard and heavy. The grain
is especially tight and dense. Normally comes from Africa.


Aspen
This wood is personally harvested from aspen burls on private property
by Jim Sigg. It is then cured for about two years before being stabilized.



Cocobolo
A deep red/orange color makes this wood one of the favorites for use on
knife handles. It is very strong, dense, and has a colorful, tight grain.



Black Ash Burl
This wood is a very tight burl and has been stabilized. It usually has numerous
eyes in a close pattern. The colors range from tan to a dark chocolate.


Curly Maple
A wavy look makes this wood differ from other woods. It is also known as
"fiddle back maple" because it is used in the making of musical instruments.


Bocote
An African wood that makes great knife handles, bows for archery and many other
outdoor applications where durability is needed along with a beautiful grain.


Redwood Burl
Redwood Burl, once stabilized, is very hard and color fast. A beautiful choice for the
extra special knife.


Elk Antler
Since the beginning, the natural animal antler has been used for knife handles. It is
tough and durable, and each piece is uniquely individual. Colors range from almost white to
grey and dark brown.


Laurel
This dark, heavy wood comes from India. It is incredibly hard and has a course grain. A truly durable
choice for a hunting knife.


California Buckeye
A colorful wood that comes from the Pacific Northwest. The thing that makes it stand out from other
woods is the color and unusual "stone like look". Ranges in color from cream grey/green to almost black.


Bloodwood
A warm, rich red color makes this African wood a great pick for knives. It has a close, tight grain and
holds it's color well. Very hard.
