To make a gift of a knife with a Cristallium handle is to offer an object of quality design and strength.
This innovative material is, in fact, a work of ingenuity. Cristallium gets its name from its exceptional properties: it is more translucent and radiant than glass. It does not yellow under the effect of UV rays, and offers excellent resistance to external shocks, solvents and even intensive use.
This superb material is greatly appreciated for its spectacular softness and shine. Cristallium is so soft and sensual to the touch, you almost don't notice you're holding it.
There are so many possible uses for Cristallium, designers use it to create unusual decorative items, jewellers find it excellent for making sleek, modern creations and eyewear manufacturers swear by it for making ultra-strong, glossy frames.
