Karelian Masur Birch (Betula pendula var. carelica) ©Paul LenzThe Karelian masur birch (Betula pendula var. Carelica) occurs in Karelia, the border region between Russia and Eastern Finland. It is simply THE classic wood for Nordic knives of all kinds, such as the Sami knife. It cannot be used for much larger objects simply because of its rather small dimensions (the trunks are normally only 4-8 inches across). Trunks with good grains are relatively rare and are much sought after. The typical appearance in the form of brown veins is unique and is found in no other burl.
The birch also plays a major role in the mythology and customs of all the Nordic and Scandinavian peoples: it was dedicated to the goddess Freya. The birch was also understand as a "tree of protection" and a "tree of light," where superstition held that it would attract lightning, which is why it is rarely found on farms. Traditions, like that of the maypole, survive to this day.


This knife block is stabilized with acrylic resin in a complex vacuum process and completely penetrated. It hardly absorbs any water, which means it is dimensionally stable and no longer cracks. Stabilized wood can be worked very well with sharp tools and behaves like hardwood. Stabilization results in very good hardness, stability and sturdiness. It is therefore also suitable for heavy use / damp areas, e.g. outdoors. Each type of wood absorbs a different amount of resin, of course, the most resinous woods.

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
