M3 Knife Scales - Black Lava range
These magnificent knife scales are available in 1.5x5x.1875. They are perfect for knife handles, gun grips, musical instrument inlays, pool cue inlays and many other creative applications. M3 can be cut by a CO2 Laser making inlays, custom branding and lettering both practical and affordable.
All M3 patterns are random, but the various grain patterns will all share similarities even over a large number of parts.
These scales are diamond sliced from precision sized M3 blocks to precise specifications allowing the faces of each scale to match as closely as possible. Only the best matches make it through our strict quality assurance inspections.
