Aptly named for its purplish heartwood, purpleheart has become a favorite for woodworkers looking for both color and strength. These purpleheart knife blanks provide excellent strength, rot resistance, and a solid feel in your hand.

Color changes can be slowed with the use of UV-inhibiting finishes. Includes two bookmatched scales, each measuring 1-1/2''W x 5''L x 3/8'' thick. Use sharp tools and take care not to overheat cutters.
The RapidAir Maxline M7500 Compressed Air Master Kit is an industrial grade system for routing compressed air throughout your shop. It's completely leakproof, corrosion resistant, and perhaps best of all, incredibly easy to install. The tubing is a layered blend of aluminum and HDPE plastic. It is easily bendable by hand for easy routing with a minimum of joints, yet maintains its shape and rigidity. And there's no need for a soldering iron and hacksaw-to make a connection, simply cut the tubing to length with the included snips, insert it into the compression fitting, and turn the nut one full turn.
