The blanks Olive root blanks selected for this listing are blanks that could be considerate "seconds" they have a few defects, minor cracks and irregular sizes, this is mostly due to the amount of shrinkage and movement the blanks got why drying from a green state, even cut oversized then, many blanks endup not allowing much squaring and or sanding, they may not be ideal for making "fat" type pens but any slimmer pens will be no problem.

The grain grade they have is a combination of everything Olive root, from burl, blue, whites, curls and everything in between, this makes these blanks very desirable.

The square corners of these blanks are also removed.

These are blanks cut and made from some Olive wood roots that I acquired some time ago.  I processed 3 of these roots and then slabbed them into small and manageable pieces, this way, the wood would also dry faster. These are not only fully dry but are the result of a careful selection of the best grade blanks.

I have written a story about these roots, and was posted on IAP (International Association of Penturners) based in the USA, in it, I added lots of pictures showing the process of cleaning and slicing the root into manageable chunks to be taken home and cut up into small slabs.  It will give you a good idea of what the material is, from the very start, have a look, here

 

Thank you for visiting...!
