Opting for an aluminium handle is no longer a luxury these days, however it is necessary to know a little more about this material before falling for an aluminium blade knife.
The advantages of aluminium.
Aluminium is an interesting material for knife handles which ensures a modern, refined and elegant style. It also offers some specific properties: it is a metal with a very low density, therefore, in addition to being very resistant, it is also very light.
Elements to take into account when buying a knife with an aluminium handle.
Aluminium is resistant to corrosion but not to scratches and shocks. It has conductive properties which may also make it cold to the touch in cold weather conditions – therefore, opt for a wooden handle if you feel the cold! Although its malleability and light weight makes it perfect for circumstances where there are weight restrictions, such as hiking, it is not necessarily ideal when it may be continually exposed to heat.
How to care for an aluminium handle?
For daily care, simply clean the blade with a damp cloth. If your aluminium handle is dirty, clean it straight away with a damp cloth + a few drops of rubbing alcohol.
If you have to remove stains, gently rub the aluminium with a damp cloth. For a faster effect, add a few drops of lemon juice.
