These White Oak Knife Scales come from genuine used Bourbon Whiskey Barrels that have some charring from firing the barrel prior to aging the whiskey for four or more years. Staves have been dried and brushed to remove excess char. Staves are, of course, bent to make the barrel, but we have cut out and milled pieces to remove much of the bend.
Cooperage Select: Taken from the staves of the barrel, the rustic patina on this wood is like its own history book. Boards have iron stains from the metal bands used to hold the barrels together. Though not guaranteed, these boards do have distillery stamps and markings on them. The inside char of the barrel has been cut away to make the 3/8" thickness and is clean quartersawn white oak.
Other Whiskey Wood® Knife Scale options include:
Black & Tannin (#162058): Dark charred wood from inside the barrel. Boards can be sanded lightly to make a very interesting look. The reverse side is clean quartersawn white oak.
Distillery Reserve (#162059): Taken from the heads of the barrels, the coveted Distillery Reserve is what you would consider “small batch.” These knife scales can be charred wood, patinaed and distillery marked boards, and even occasionally display hand writing from the distillers themselves.
