We've been affectionately calling the wood handles on this thing "Ciabatta" because we have no idea how to pronounce "Cuibourtia." But it seems delicious. Like ciabatta bread. But it's not bread, so don't eat it. In fact, this Cuibourtia wood is widely used in the furniture industry. It's natural, organic, and each handle is unique, so you're going to see variations in texture and color. Each knife is like its own little loaf of bread: same flavor, but perfectly one-of-a-kind. The natural nature of these scales also means it will swell or shrink with the weather-- kind of like your grandpa's bad knee. WE worked around this by putting steel liners in both sides of the handle; the flexing won't impact the performance of the knife.
Also: can we talk about how classy this knife looks with that ciabatta wood and bronze anodized titanium thumb stud? Even my brother was like, "Whoa. That looks classy." It's been a year since the Baby Banter was released, and he still doesn't have one. Maybe I'll gift him one for Christmas this year. Maybe.
