Unique Material - Camel bone is a unique material for knife handles, offering an exotic look and natural texture that sets it apart from other...
Thousands of years have passed since bone was first used in cutlery. In ancient times, craftsmen used animal bone as a material to make knife handles and other tools. Bone was prized for its availability, strength and ease of processing.
Over time, cutlery developed and diversified, leading to the use of a variety of materials. However, bone remained a popular material due to its unique aesthetic appeal and comfortable grip. It was common to see knife handles made from the bones of animals such as beef, deer, camel and even whalebone.
With industrialization, the popularity of bone in cutlery declined due to the introduction of synthetic materials and plastics. However, some traditional craftsmen and cutlers have continued to perpetuate the use of bone, preserving ancestral knowledge.
Today, bone is still used in premium cutlery, including collector's knives, handcrafted pieces and luxury goods. Modern stabilization and coloring techniques have preserved the natural appearance of bone while improving its durability and resistance to humidity.
