These are a truly beautiful and unique set of knife scales.

How I make them - First I place the cones in a wood hardening solution called "Cactus Juice" in a vacuum chamber and this replaces the air within the cone with the cactus juice thus hardening the cone material. I then place the cones in a mold and poor a 2 part casting resin material called "alumilite" around then with different dyes to add the color to the scales and then place that mold in a pressure pot which forces the resin material deep into the empty spaces of the cone. I will then remove it from the mold and cut into 2 pieces and then sand the entire scale with 150grit sand paper.

This set of scales was dyed using red dye and pearl metallic swirls. These scales can be shined up very glossy on a buffing wheel to finish and make for a very professional looking knife. There are 4 cones in these scales that will give a very different and unique look to the finished knife.

Dimensions - 4 3/4 x 1 15/16 x 5/16

Cone scales may have tiny areas where the resin did not fully penetrate into the empty space, but can easily be filled with CA glue during the finishing process of the knife handles.

The last picture shows a pine cone knife handle finished on one of my knife blades.
