Richlite - burgundy scales for knife handles.

An ecological knife handle material made of paper.

Richlite is an ecological material for high quality knife handles made from cellulose fibers (paper layers) and thermosetting resin.

The burgundy (bordeaux) color borrows its color from our famous French wines, a direct reminder of our terroir. It can also darken and take on warmer hues over time.

The sheets of paper are stacked by hand, alternating the direction of the paper to achieve the best possible balance and stability. They are then hot-pressed to bind them together and create a strong material. This process allows to have a machinable scale (drilling, tapping,...) while being dense, homogeneous and without void. But also to bring an aesthetic marbled and soft with a feeling of leather in the hand.

This innovative material is used in new applications such as furniture, restaurant tables, worktops, kitchen doors, signage, cladding or even knife handles!

The use of Richlite in such varied fields proves and certifies its quality.
