Comment : This wood is dense and easy to work. In cutlery and cabinet making, it is the twisted trunks and burls that are sought after. They deliver a wood known as curly, i.e. veined or spotted with brown of a beautiful effect, suitable for the veneer. Curly birch is a natural material used in cutlery. The craftsmen of our French company, specialized in the manufacture of materials for cutlery, offer stabilized birch of high quality and treated according to strict standards. This material, both aesthetic and solid, is ideal for the realization of knife handles, offering a touch of elegance to your cutting tool.
Stabilized wood: Stabilizing a material literally means making it more stable. In most cases, we could say that this operation consists of densifying it, using a resin. By a process that we keep secret we make penetrate in heart a resin and/or pigments of colors.
We thus obtain a more homogeneous and often more aesthetic material because the resin (and/or the pigments) highlights the drawings of the stabilized piece.
In addition to the aesthetic aspects, this process makes it possible to make usable materials which had only weak mechanical qualities. Thus a "heated" or heavily damaged wood regains its nobility.
Our catalog: We offer a wide range of natural wood, stabilized wood, bone, horn, deer, mineral, composite materials (carbon, fiberglass, etc.) and mounting accessories (screws).
