Why Walnut Stock Blanks
From trees reputedly over 300 years old, Turkish walnut is the wood of choice for beautiful gun stocks.
Walnut is tough and hard and is not prone to splitting which makes it an obvious choice for gun stocks.
Walnut is also one of the most beautiful woods with every stock having a unique style and shape which lends itself beautifully to embossing, engraving and carving.
Walnut Stock Blank Harvesting
Harvested from individual tress, with each piece having a unique character, grain and colour depicting its region of growth.
Walnut receives its grain based on the temperature fluctuations in the tree’s location. The more extreme the variations in temperature the better the quality of the stocks.
The colour of the stock comes from the actual composition of the soil that the walnut grows in.
