This material is made of impregnated fabric layers with epoxy resins. It is mainly used for its resistance and insensitivity to the external environment.
The aspect can vary based on the fabric pattern, on the ratio of the latter compared to the resin and on the superficial finish. It can also have a plain colour or contrasting layers, which could be brought out with a 3D processing.
Very similar to the micarta for its construction the G-10 is not made of cotton but of glass fibre laminates filled with coloured epoxy resin. This entails that the strength and the duration are even greater. Usually the G-10 is supplied with a superficial coarse texture with a variable grain.
The finest woods from around the globe are used, carefully selected and stabilised to get Viper knives. Our handles go through a series of treatments that make them water-resistant and long-lasting, minimising the dimensional variation due to the temperature and embellishing them.
Carbon fiber has a filiform, very thin structure, and is a light and resistant material. It is worked with machines suitable for obtaining excellent aesthetic and hardness results
Carbon fiber composite materials have all the advantages known on carbon fiber such as: light weight, high stiffness and strength, corrosion resistance, dimensional stability. They have an incredible aesthetic appearance given by the colored pigment in contrast with the black of the carbon fiber.
The burl is the most precious part of the wood but also the most difficult one to work. The complex pattern requires a careful inspection of every sheet, highlighting the parts that are free of faults and fissures suitable to get the handles out of it.
