A tortoiseshell style handle.
The handle of this tortoiseshell style knife is made of cellulose acetate, a material invented in 1865 and used in varnish, especially in the 1910s and during the Great War, to coat airplanes and make them lighter.
Technology to the rescue of nature.
The material of the handle of this tortoiseshell style knife is a perfect imitation of the tortoiseshell that was very fashionable until the last century. To the delight of turtles and their defenders, technology today makes it possible to reproduce nature (almost) identically by producing this tortoiseshell style like material. And so much the better!
