What is Micarta and why are they more expensive?
White Micarta is the trademark of Norplex-Micarta, and is the term often used to describe a phenolic laminate.
Although difficult to make skilled artisans impregnate layers of white linen with epoxy and press them under high pressure. The result is a stunning product that is truly a work of art.
Theirs Issard has chosen to make their knives with these handles because of their beauty, elegance and resilience. White Micarta handles are more resistant to heat and moisture than regular wood and won’t fade or yellow over time.
Bon Vivant is the premier importer of these knives and we are proud to offer these amazing works for those with a taste for elegance and quality.
Your choice has the potential of becoming a treasured family heirloom.
