About Juniper wood:

Juniper wood is characterized by its fine texture, featuring slightly wavy age rings that are clearly visible and separated by narrow red latewood segments. When unprocessed, juniper wood emanates an intense, yet pleasant aroma reminiscent of camphor tree oil, a member of the laurel family.

As a strong, robust material that withstands intensive wear and tear, juniper wood is an excellent choice for crafting handle scales. Its yellow-brown color and delicate, yet highly contrasting patterns contribute to its unique visual appeal.

In addition to its sturdiness and toughness, juniper wood is easy to work with, making it a popular choice for artisans and craftsmen. The combination of its intricate patterns, durability, and ease of processing ensures that juniper wood remains a preferred material for creating handle scales that are both functional and visually stunning.

Due to the use of natural materials, the appearance varies from one handle to another. The images shown are not contractually binding.
