Sabatier Knives -Coral Handles

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Can someone explain exactly what a "coral wood" handle is? is it actual wood? a wood composite? some sort of plastic that looks like wood?  I have a friend who owns these knives and I didn't look closely, and they were older but I did thing they were real wood.

I guess it's what most of us call pakka wood. Very common with Japanese Western-handled knives. Pressed, resin impregnated laminated wood.

I have two knives with pakkawood handles, the stuff seems near indestructible.

My Sabatiers date to the early 70's and the handles are black and man-made.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.

I guess the Sabatiers from the 70's have POM or natural wood handles. Pakka is a major improvement.
