Bone has been used as a material for tools and weapons since the Stone Age. Tools made of bone and stone are among the oldest proven tools of mankind. So it is no wonder that animal bone handles exert a very special fascination on us.
The material for our grip shells is extracted from Argentine cattle bones. In order to prepare it for processing, the bone marrow is first removed. The bone is then sterilized and degreased by boiling for a short time. Only then can the cattle bone be processed further.
Bone is a very durable material, especially if you take care of some things. Long, dry heat and too dry storage should be avoided, as should long uses in boiling water. Also solvent-containing cleaners and abrasives and not least also the dishwasher should be avoided. All these things can attack and impair the structure of the bone. In addition, no oil should come to the bone, otherwise it will discolour.
