C-Tek (i.e. aluminum honeycomb) is an aluminum honeycomb hybrid with resin. When finishing knife handles made with this material, you can produce a honeycomb surface. We recommend sanding to a finishing grit and then buffing with Tripoli, followed by White Diamond. It is important—as with all resin materials—to avoid excessive heat when sanding and buffing. This can be achieved by starting with rougher grits and utilizing light pressure.
These scales or blocksare made in color batches, with a limited number available from each batch as listed. If you see a color which you like, but not enough scales of a single batch for your project, feel free to contact us for a custom order.
