With a stock of almost 14 %, beech is the most widespread deciduous tree in Germany. This wood is extremely popular and being especially used for furniture or firewood. In rare cases, a so-called stick sponge pulls through the wood, which provides a unique grain.
What is stabilized wood?
The handle woods by market leader Raffir are subject to a very special stabilization process. First of all the air is sucked out of the wooden pores under vacuum. Subsequently, a purpose-built special plastic is pressed through the material. After curing, stabilized "Raffir-Woods" are extremely resistant to moisture, blood, sweat, (food) juices and thus very hygienic. They require no special care, don’t need to be oiled or impregnated and can be polished to a high gloss without any aids!
Stabilized handle materials by Raffir are easy to be processed and are in their hardness comparable to a hardwood. Drilling, sawing and grinding are easily possible. Small gaps or grain openings cannot be fully ruled out in any type of wood. But these can easily be repaired with super-glue and epoxy adhesives. The processing of stabilized wood is harmless to health, however, as with any processing of wood wearing a dust mask is highly recommended!
