Tortoise shell knives
Note though that in the 16th century, Henry IV owned a crib made out of a whole tortoise shell…
The knife handle is shaped from a genuine piece of shell from a hawksbill turtle (species: Eretmochelys imbricata, taken from pre-convention legal stock). This vibrant, high-quality material, natural and yet sophisticated, glimmers with a rich palette of colors that ranges from dark brown to coral red, sometimes even honey shades that give the shell a most beautiful clarity.
A warm and varied palette of colors that makes each knife absolutely unique.
