Boxwood handle

Boxwood is a dense and hard wood, primarily used for its strength and durability. It is renowned for its fine texture and tight grain, making it an ideal material for Laguiole knives. Boxwood has a pale yellow to light brown color, with subtle variations in tone that add to its visual appeal.

One of the main characteristics of boxwood is its dimensional stability. It has a low tendency to warp or split, even when exposed to changes in humidity or temperature. This makes it a preferred choice for Laguiole knives handles, as it provides a solid and comfortable grip.

In addition to its stability, boxwood is also resistant to wear and impact. It can withstand abrasion and maintains its smooth and polished appearance for a long time. This property is particularly important for Laguiole knives, as they are often subjected to intense stresses during use.

Boxwood is also appreciated for its ease of workability. It can be precisely carved, sanded, and polished, allowing Laguiole knife artisans to create intricate designs and smooth finishes. Its high density also offers good resistance to stains and chemicals, making maintenance of boxwood Laguiole knives easier.

Today, it is still widely used in craftsmanship for the production of high-end Laguiole knives handles. Laguiole knives with boxwood handles are appreciated for their aesthetic appeal and ergonomics.
