We use a variety of excellent components for a wide range of handle choices. All the materials used are of high quality, however, we strongly recommend only handwashing our products due to the damage that may be caused by using a dishwasher.
Our Noir and Walnut series tools are named for their respective handle materials. Noir material is POM, short for Polyoxymethylene, a durable plastic commonly used in Kitchen and Home Appliances. It’s so strong it’s often used for structural purposes as well. Our Noir line is the only handle suggested to be dishwasher safe.
We offer a wide variety of handle materials for our forged knife series:
The Midnight series uses G-10, a fiberglass-resin composite, making it the most robust of our handle materials. G-10 stands up amazingly well to heat and moisture.
The Fire and Ice series both use a proprietary mix of acrylic resins for their handles. These robust and stunning smoky red or smoky white handles complement any color in your kitchen.
The Sierra series handles are constructed of material made from layers of wood pressed together and bonded with resin to form a robust and consistent handle material. This material is also commonly referred to as Pakkawood.
As with our walnut-handled tools, the Walnut series uses solid walnut infused with cactus oil to create a beautiful and long-lasting finish. Like any other wood product it is highly recommended NOT to clean in a dishwasher.
