Decorative Material Samples

Accent your knife handles to complement your luxury lifestyle with decorative bolsters, spacers, pins and more. With numerous customization options, you can create a striking design that works perfectly with the artistic aesthetic you want to achieve.

We are happy to help suggest options that work well with the wood species you are using for your handles. Please refer to the images on this page for samples of the types of materials, coloration, and options we've frequently seen requested.

Like our blades and handles, our bolsters are handcrafted and shaped to fit to each knife.

Our decorative accent spacers are available in: red, cinnamon (muted red), grey, black, white, ivory, canary yellow, faux stone composite in many color choices including hot pink and "onyx" and other unique accent possibilities.
