My blades are each built by hand from quality veneers, core, and handle wood. I have a wide range of veneers in my inventory that were selected both for their beauty and for their applicability in blade construction. Core material is selected for its light weight and availability in suitable thicknesses. I use a variety of decorative hardwoods and softwoods for my handles to complete each visually distinct blade.
Whether traditional or not, the cores and veneers can be combined harmoniously to form a beautiful and playable blade.
