Stabilized Poplar Burl
Raffir stabilized poplar burl is the high end choice for handles and inlays. Burl wood is a wonder of nature, and every piece is unique. Still each variation is natural and beautiful. All our poplar burl is forested in Europe, and each piece is carefully selected before stabilization.
Variations and properties
Stabilized poplar burl maintains the unique grain patterns of the untreated wood. Meanwhile, it obtains mechanical advantages from the strong resin compound. We stabilize poplar burl in ten colors: natural, yellow, orange, red, purple, lime, green, blue, brown and black. Raffir stabilized wood has high durability and obtains a high gloss finish after polishing. It absorbs very little water and has low swelling and shrinkage at different humidity. The material has a smooth surface and needs no other finishing than fine sanding and polishing.
Our standard handle blocks are 120*40*25mm, while handle scales are 120*40*8mm. Custom dimensions are also available for other purposes. We can cut up to the size of our finished raw blocks. The raw blocks differ in size because of their organic nature. However, they are normally up to 260*135*60mm. You are welcome to contact us for further information. Or you can ask our retailers for their current availability.
