Handle material

Make handles yourself.

For a truly unique knife, a handmade handle is a special asset. Below are a few examples for inspiration.

On this page we will offer products for the self-production of this type of handles. For the production the following items are essential:

  • epoxy adhesive (2-components)
  • Sandpaper (various grits)
  • Material (wood, buffalo horn, brass, copper, stone, plastic, etc)
  • Wood grater
  • Oil or furniture wax
  • Wood drill
  • Bench vice with wooden clamps (not to damage your handle)

To make it easier we recommend the use of a fixed sander such as a disc sander or belt sander. Also note good dust extraction as some wood species can produce irritating dust particles during sanding.

There are many techniques for assembling your handle. Many instructional videos can be found on youtube.
