Challenge

Blackwave got the opportunity from the renowned knife manufacturer Böker, producing the grip plates of the limited edition Böker Anso 67 hunting knife. Therefore we had to find a new material, which would have a pleasant feel and also complements the look of the Damascus steel blades.

Solution

After some material testing we were able to find the right raw prepreg that was both easy to process and provide the required surface quality after polishing. For the low volume production of 100 knives the grip plates were milled from carbon SMC and refined afterwards.
