ColorTuff Wood(tm) is a high pressure, heat cured laminate wood that is weather resistant and dyed in layers with vibrant UV resistant colors. This is heat and pressure cured wood laminate and not the ordinary plywood you find at the local lumberyard. The colored layers, when shaped reveal beautiful patterns and color combinations that will add style and eye catching appeal to your knife handles. ColorTuff is highly weather resistant, more than any "normal" wood. It may outlast the steel blade! If you want a very tough, stable (minimal movement due to humidity) durable wood handle that adds some color and style to your knife, this is the material. Available in dozens of color combinations. This material can be sanded and buffed to a high gloss for a beautiful shine.
We use a carbide tipped saw blade to cut the panels we receive to size because a typical blade dulls too quickly.
