Description

Meet my limited edition ”Flax-fiber oyster knife”. A handmade oyster knife made from RWL34 stainless steel and natural flax-fiber micarta. It has a mosaic handle pin that symbolizes a ”Zeeuwse knoop”: a traditional local symbol of decoration. The knife is made in an old workshop, located 25 meters from the salt water where our family has grown oysters for decades.

The knife itself is very ergonomically. The large handle gives good grip and control. This allows the user to easily enter the oyster with less risk for the hand that is holding the oyster. The sharp point of the knife can only be maintained because of the RWL34 steel. This pure Swedish powder steel is state of the art and very corrosion resistant.

The handle is made out of flax. This plant is harvested and woven into cloth. It will look and act like carbon fiber, but on a natural basis. To make this happen, the fabric is cast into bio epoxy and cured in a vacuum condition. This allows the the handle material to become strong and solid. Your knife handle will therefore have a beautiful looking material that is free of plastics, solvents and other chemicals.
