Model handle: Ash tree (Fraxinus excelsior) harvested in France + resine. In Norse mythology, ash was the "Tree of life". Pressed with resine, ash offers a solid handle and more interestingly a water resistant handle and knife. Despite that's still wood, you can wash your ash tree cutlery in the dishwasher! Extremely convenient when you receive several guests or owns a restaurant.
The ash handle is enhanced by two shiny stainless steel bolsters forged and fixed on a metal liner which will be drilled and polished before the assembly of the knife. They help to protect the handle during daily use.
