Lace Sheoak (casuarina) Knife Handle Blank

15

Australian lacewood is a coastal evergreen hardwood that has spread throughout the Pacific and Indian oceans, it was used by the first fleet to repair their ships and found to be almost as strong as oak (hence the common name she-oak).

Like all lacewoods the stunning medullary ray figure is bolder in the rift sawn face and finer in the quartersawn face. Sheoak is a pale peachy orange and the ray figure subdued when freshly cut. With exposure to UV light, it gradually darkens through orange and over decades will eventually go a rich brown, the contrast of the figure becoming progressively more pronounced.

We do not photograph these blanks individually - so the image is an example of what you will receive.


Approx: 30mm x 45mm x 130mm
