Building the stock

Strong, yet so light in your hand, and most of all: beautiful. The quest for the ideal walnut root takes us throughout the world – all to find the wood that is the essence of our stock. Meticulously air-dried, the roots are then washed and the bark is shaved off. Finally cut, the wood is carefully stored for another three years and the moisture is gradually drawn out. Now the walnut is ready to be worked into shape. Gently precision-filed, sandpapered, oiled. All by hand by our craftsmen in our own unique facility – an important preparation for the marriage between wood and metal. Shaping a stock that will stand the test of time.
