A bolster is between the blade and the handle wood and protects the handle wood from absorbing water from the end grain of the handle wood. Water will be soaked up like a sponge without protection. I use metal – brass, copper, stainless.
I use either brass or copper bolsters (3/4″ x 3/8″) , which are pinned/rivets and glued onto the blade steel.

Bolster Prices – single or double ? Copper, brass or stainless ?
(a bolster is between blade and wood handle)

Single brass bolsters – cost included in prices on price list.
Double brass bolsters cost $ 25.00 extra.

Single copper or stainless bolsters – add $25.00.
Double copper or stainless bolsters add $50.00.

Bolster spacers
– see foto above for white/black/white 1/8″ thick spacer array.

Bolster spacers are between the brass bolsters and the wood. They complement or highlight the bolster and the wood.
I stock 2 thicknesses of bolster material – 1/8″ and .031 thick along with various thicknesses of stabilized burled hard wood.

1/8″ bolster spacers come in red, black and white.
.031 vulcanized spacer materials come in red, black, white and green.

Cost of bolster spacers, of either 1/8″ thick or .031″ thickness or combinations of the two ~
1 insert for $20.00
2 inserts for $30.00
3 inserts for $40.00
4  inserts for $60.00

Stabilized wood – Redwood is in LIMITED SUPPLY
I can always order in wood from retailers on the web, who I have dealt with previously.

If you want stabilized wood, I now offer stabilized Redwood for $20.00 per knife, to ordering clients. This charge covers cost of shipping and stabilizing my Redwood at a company in Arizona that does this.  I consider Redwood a dark wood. If you want a different stabilized dark wood, or a light wood then tell me and I can send you some sensible options. I can also send you some links to companies I have successfully dealt with, who offer their own line of stabilized wood. Just ask me for any and all details to order in the wood of your choice.
**Note – I do not work with ‘pig wood’. That is wood from endangered species. Always avoid wood from endangered species.

See photo below (click to enlarge) of Steak knife Set w/ stabilized Redwood handles.

 


Bed spacers (see 2nd slide at the top) are strictly .031 thick only.
I have black, red, green or white colors in stock, but there are some other colors that can be ordered,
if they exist. Just ask and we can see if I can order it.

Bed spacers run horizontally below the wood, your choice of colors:

1 spacer – $25.00 per knife
2 spacers – $32.00
3 spacers – $45.00
