Tool Handles

L-R: Medium Tintul, small Tintul
and small Ebony.

These attractive handles will make even the most random selection of tools look like a matching set. Found in many career luthier's shops, they provide a comfortable handle for files, gravers, rasps, small saws, reamers and chisels. We offer two sizes, medium and small, both with solid brass ferrules. The medium handle is 5 1/2", the small handle is 4". The tang hole on the medium handle is 3/16" and the hole on the small handle is 5/32" . These handles are actually made from Tintul, an Indian "Rosewood-like" wood from India. The Ebony handle is made from striped Indian Ebony.

Ferrules need to be drilled out to accept some tools.
Tools may be glued in to the handle with epoxy.
