Richlite scales, black color, for knives handles.
An ecological knife handles material made of paper.
Richlite is an ecological handles material for high quality knife handles made from cellulose fibers (paper layers) and thermosetting resin.
The black ecological handles material is deep, rich, velvety, like jet stone, almost reminiscent of the color of slate. It is by far the most popular color in the line because it retains its consistency and hue over time.

Whether for industrial, leisure or culinary use, when worked, Richlite provides an attractive aesthetic finish with excellent performance including:
- scratch resistant
- heat resistant up to 176°C (self-extinguishing: eliminates heat source)
- high resistance to chemicals and stains
- naturally antimicrobial (JIS 2801) and easy to clean
- insoluble in water
- suitable for all types of projects
- environmentally friendly material for handles - LEED® : international symbol of excellence in sustainability and leadership in green building
- Reuse of materials
- Recycled content
- Non-recycled paper: fast-renewing eucalyptus fiber with 50% old cardboard waste
- FSC® certified wood (from responsibly and sustainably managed forests or plantations)
- Low emission materials
- innovation in conception

A guarantee of quality
To achieve the best possible balance and stability, the American company Richlite alternates the direction of the paper when stacking the sheets. This process is done by hand. Then they are hot pressed to bind them and obtain a strong, dense and machinable material (drilling, tapping,...), all homogeneous and without gaps. The result of this ecological handles material is a soft, mottled aesthetic that feels like leather in your hand.
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.
