Does anyone use Balau wood for handles? or know if it would be any good for handles?

I got a fairly large piece of it and if it is good I would like to try stabilizing it

I doubt you can stabilize it, it's a close relative of teak and similarly dense and oily.  It should make a fine and durable handle, but it's not very exciting to look at.

Thanks Alan, I Think I will cut a piece next time I have access to the proper equipment and see how it looks. If  it doesn't look nice enough I will save it for another project.
