Grey Richlite scales for knifemaking
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.
Richlite combines strength, resistance and durability with respect for the environment. The manufacturing process consists of alternating layers of paper sheets (for the best possible stability and balance) before hot pressing them, resulting in a strong, dense and machinable material (drilling, tapping,...), all homogeneous and without voids.
Made from paper (FSC certified or recycled) and ecological resin (EcoBind), once worked, it gives a mottled, matt and marbled aesthetic to your knife handles, with the bonus of the softness of leather to the touch...
The ecological material for grey handles is at first dark grey, then takes a little bronze tint.

Richlite, since 1943
At the forefront of environmental protection, Richlite began its activity by developing natural fiber composites for aerospace and industry in 1943. Then, this material opened up to the maritime field by being used in the construction of boats. Since the 60's, Richlite is more and more used in the food industry, especially in professional kitchens. 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. It has become an ecological material for quality knife handles.
