. Handles made of horn, bone and ivory
To keep the beautiful look of the handles, avoid abrupt changes in temperature and/or humidity.
Handles made of horn, bone and ivory can be cleaned by rubbing with whitening.
Our horn-handled knives are all made from living, natural materials. The horn plates used for these knives will therefore always vary. For example, there will always be varying degrees of white streaking in a black horn-handled knife.
. Handles made of precious wood
However, if the knife is used regularly, no upkeep is necessary for the handle, as perspiration from the hand is the best cleaning product.
Wooden-handled knives are crafted from wood species sorted for their hardiness and beauty, but they are all different. For this reason, it will always be difficult to find 2 knives with strictly the same wooden handle.
Cracks in the handles can be repaired with sawdust in the same colour (either using the same wood or by staining).
Mix the sawdust with colourless glue and fill in the cracks. Allow to dry and the wax finish.
