Kitchen knife handle

I'm making a large kitchen knife for a friend. trying to decide what to use for the handle material. I was thinking snakewood or koa. if i use these do they need to be stabilized? each scale will be roughly 1/2". worried about the nature of the knife causing issues with cracking or warping.

thanks in advance

chris
