The handles are made of snakewood, ebony, rosewood and buffalo each with a distinctive patina and of course are a pleasure to own. The ebony handled knives provide a sharp elegant contrast to the brass fittings. On all our pages you can look at the links on the bottom of the page or simply scroll through the pages using the large numbers at the top of each page. A new handle material is the Ox which is only available on one of the pruners. Ox horn is translucent and adds depth to the colour. Ox horn is a superb artistic material for the pocket knife handles but because of it’s limited supply and difficulty in working it is only available on one knife type.
