    new handle material (kirinite) by eagle grips

    Hey guys we got some new stuff at the hammer inn to try as handle scales.
    Its called Kirinite from eagle grips (Raj M Singh)
    Works kind of like plastic but tuffer,be careful not to heat up to high and this stuff is cool,the lines in it look 3-d after you buff it out.
    Here is some pics of the necker i just finished with it tell me or Boss what you think.

    I think I want some!

    Does it seem pretty durable? Also, any info on whether or not the darned health inspectors would approve it in commercial kitchens? Yeah, some municipalities only allow poly or SS type handles on the knives...
    Time is never wasted when spent learning something...

    Glad to see you got a knife done already with the Kirinite. It looks really good, I'm hoping to work on mine this weekend. I'm anxious to see some of the red and black Kirinite.

    Not my cup of tea (handle material not the knife, I like the knife) but might be cool in other color combo's

    WOW Man!

    It looks like the handle took some Pschcos! LOL. Cool! does it glow in the dark and leave trails too?

    Just Joking Frankie! I am interested in trying some of that! It looks like it would be "Approved"
    handle material for commercial kitchen use.

    Do you know where I could contact this gentleman?

    Keep your nose to the grind stone!

    At this point USAknifemaker.com will be the exclusive dealer for Kirinite knife handle material - at least initially. We will be starting with 6 different color pallets/patterns in 4 thicknesses (1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8"). We are still working through the initial dealer set up and hopefully we can move it right along. It's amazing looking stuff. some of those attending our hammer in last weekend got a set of sample scales. We should see some others show up here also.
