Curly Birch Grade A wood block.
Size approx 30x40x120mm.
Curly birch is a mutation of the much more common Silver Birch. It is found most predominantly in southern and eastern Finland, as well as neighbouring areas in Russia. In addition curly birch can be found in southern parts of other Nordic countries. The genetic defect stems the growth and causes wood tissues to form V shaped colorations and often a fiery appearance. Curly birch is harder than normal birch and is used as a hardwood substitute. Historically the most used wood in the Puukko industry and still true today.
Sold singularly, stock photos of example pieces.
Curly birch grades according to Bladepoint. There is no clear line on grading wood, but we try to always keep our stock topped with great material so we can upgrade rather than downgrade. Being a natural material there may be small twigs, surface cracks and similar. We try our best to notice these and when deemed still workable, these blocks get downgraded one or two categories.
Unique grades: Great pattern and/or flames on all 6 sides, through and through. Reserved for truly special pieces.
A Grade: Great pattern and/or flames on 4-6 sides. Few pale areas.
B Grade: Good pattern on 4 sides, some pale areas.
C Grade: Pattern on 2-3 sides, more than 50% pale area.
D Grade: Blocks with a few specks here and there. Also well patterned blocks with fatal flaws such as large twigs and similar go here. There are no great blocks in this category, but they will always be useful in some way.
