The Hugo oyster knife is a fully circular product. That means it can be 100% recycled and no chemicals, glue or lacquering are added during the making process.
The reason is twofold: It’s better for the environment, but it’s also better for me. Since I make all the knives myself I have the chance to breathe all the glue and chemicals. By removing them from the process, there is no chance of inhaling them or releasing them into the environment.
Since the knife is made out of a single piece of titanium, it can be molten back into new usable material. Emergo Designs will take back your knife so we can recycle it, or we can give instructions so you can do it yourself. The titanium scrap price is high and profits for handing the material in should cover all the shipping costs.
