Ironwood is one of the most beautiful and sought after woods in the world,
and an all time favorite for custom knife makers. It has a very durable,
tight grained figure, with a specific gravity of 1.2, making it one of
densest and most stable woods on earth. It is so dense that it will not
float in water, and so hard that it has been used for bearings, but it does
work well using sharp sanding/cutting tools. Ironwood does not splinter when
shaping and it holds a great translucent finish.
for Working and Finishing Ironwood
a mirror finish, be sure to use your sand paper grits wisely so not to
overheat and warp the wood. For example, start with 100 grit and work your
way down to 340, etc. We do our best to sell clear materials, but if you run
into any hairline checks when working the ironwood, I recommend bridging
with super thin CA, ideally gluing at the 100 grit stage of sanding so you
can sand off dry glue with ease. Once you get a smooth 320 or 500 grit
finish, I buff on a hard cotton wheel using 2000 grit green chrome to a
polish. You are done.
