Reinforced wood is a material made from natural wood that has been treated with a synthetic resin or pressure treatment to make it more durable. Its characteristics are as follows
Durability: Reinforced wood is extremely durable compared to natural wood. The processing and synthetic treatment protects the wood from moisture, humidity, insects, and mold. Therefore, when used for knife handles, etc., long-term durability can be expected.
Stability: Less susceptible to temperature and humidity changes, the wood maintains stable performance in changing environments. This reduces the risk of cracking or warping of knife handles.
Workability: Reinforced wood is based on natural wood, which is easy to process and allows for the creation of any shape and design of the handle. Various shapes and textures can be achieved depending on the processing technique.
Aesthetic appearance: Reinforced wood can retain the texture and beauty of natural wood while improving durability. This allows you to enjoy the texture and feel of wood for a long time.
Hygienic advantages: Reinforced wood is also a hygienic material because its smooth, extremely smooth surface is resistant to dirt and bacteria.
Reinforced wood is sometimes used for knife handles, where its durability and hygienic benefits are appreciated. Reinforced wood is available in a variety of colors and textures, and is widely used to customize the design and appearance of knives.
