Grip plates made from buffalo horn

With its vivid structure, the horn of the African water buffalo is a marvelous material of nature. It is an excellent material to work with as it is easily lathed, cut and ground. It also is quite malleable when exposed to heat. The horn is often worked into drinking vessels, knife handles, musical instruments, inlay work and other unique objects.
The handle plates are made from the so-called “partie pleine” (French: “full part”) of the black buffalo horn, i.e. from the massive tip of the horn. The handles are polished by hand and therefore repel dirt quite well. However, horn stands rather poorly against humidity and should therefore be thoroughly dried after each cleaning. Similar to wood, horn can withstand alterations in temperature and humidity.

Every knife is a unique piece.

Every cutler whose knives are offered through Original-Laguiole fulfill the strictest business regulations of the CITES conference for the protection of species for the use of tropical woods, horns, corals and ivory in its grip plates.
