Material Samples

Throughout our product pages, you will see many samples of our different blades and handles, combined with some of our exquisite decorative and finishing elements. However, since we have so many customization options, it is impossible to display photographs of each of our products made with each custom blade and decorative option.

To make the ordering process easier, please refer to the images on this page to see examples of our different bolster and decorative fitting materials. As with all of our blades and handles, our bolsters are handcrafted and shaped to fit to each knife.

Images below also show samples of how bolsters look with contrasting materials and accent spacers, each of which can be added for further customization during your Order Review process.

Our decorative accent spacers are available in: red, bright cherry red, cinnamon (muted red), grey, black, white, royal blue, canary yellow, green. 

Please contact us if you need additional information or assistance.

Colors may have slight variations due to computer settings, screen resolution, etc. Wood products have natural color and grain variations that make each piece unique. We have attempted to show a wide variety of our wood products to display the variances as best possible. When ordering custom products, please expect some slight differences from images on our website due to the inherent characteristics of natural materials and hand-woodworking and hand-forging techniques.
