Raffir® Nobel Brass and Bronze composites for Randall® Knife Handles and other hidden tang knife applications.
We sell the blocks in one size at 1 5/8" by 1 3/4" X 5" (1.625" X 1.75" X 5"). This is done to capture the greatest beauty of the mesh and it is also the largest size specified for Randall knives. If you need a smaller block it is needful to cut a larger block down. Email us to let us know the dimensions you want and we will cut the block to your requested size. If purchasing for a Randall® knife please check with the Randall shop to determine the size block you need and then email us those dimensions. There is no charge for cutting these blocks to your size but we do not accept returns on custom size blocks.
Raffir® Nobel Brass and Bronze composites are brass and bronze mesh wire weave beds encapsulated in translucent epoxy resins. The result is a beautiful and captivating handle material with class.
The wire mesh is woven throughout each block so the finished handle shows a number of brass and/or bronze wires meshed within the rich resin. The weave is seen throughout the block - not just on the sides.
Sold in blocks, this material is easily cut with standard band saw blades and then worked with standard tools such as files, belt sanders, drum sanders, etc.. It accepts a buffed or any clear coat finish and retains a high gloss. Standard safety measures should be followed while working the material, and inhaling dust particles should be avoided by using local exhaust ventilation and respirator.
