Flame Box Elder handles and Maple blades
The striking red and pink 'flames' throughout this beautiful wood are the source of some controversy in the wood working world as it is unclear exactly what causes it. Several different explanations include stress from bug attacks, too much exposure to water, or even long term exposure to strong winds. Whatever the reason, we love it over here at MAV!
Any existing bug holes or bark checks have been filled with clear resin to maintain a comfortable grip.
Each piece is hand crafted, hand sanded up to a fine finish, and coated with a blend of beeswax and orange oil to bring out the NATURAL beauty of the wood.
