Fat Carbon Materials is among the new fashions of the moment in cutlery.
Carbon is already a material that has been used for a long time in knife making for the construction of handles but in recent months the union of carbon with other materials has created new aesthetic motifs with the mechanical characteristics of carbon combined.
What are composite materials?
The most scientific explanation is:
“A composite material is a material consisting of two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties that, when combined, produce a material with different characteristics from the individual components. The individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure, differentiating the composites from solid mixtures and solutions.”
But in practice, this is just a material without limits in use, from its incredible mechanical properties to the exclusive appearance that lends itself to being used for many uses including the creation of knife handles but is also used in the creation of pens, jewelry, musical instruments, etc.
The only limit is your imagination!
Carbon fiber composite sheets and blocks
Carbon fiber is not only a durable and reliable material that can withstand most harsh conditions, but also looks good.
In materials science and technology, the carbon fiber is a material that has a structure filiform, very thin, made of carbon, generally used in the realization of a wide variety of “composite materials”, so called because they consist of two or more materials, which in this case are carbon fibers and a so-called matrix, generally of resin (but can be in other plastic or metal material) whose function is to keep the resistant fibers in “laying” (so that they maintain the correct orientation in absorbing the efforts), to protect the fibers and also to maintain the shape of the composite product.
For the realization of composite structures, the carbon fibers are first woven into real carbon fabric cloths and once laid they are immersed in the matrix.
Among the characteristics of carbon fiber stand out high mechanical strength, low density, thermal insulation capacity, resistance to temperature changes and the effect of chemical agents, good fireproof properties.
On the other hand, the composite material in carbon fibers is not homogeneous and often has a marked anisotropy, that is, its mechanical characteristics have a privileged direction.
The term carbon fiber is often misused to refer to the composite material of which carbon fiber is a component.
Here are some examples of Fat Carbon Materials

Carbon Fiber “Jungle Wear”
Carbon Fiber “Snake Skin Copper”
Carbon Fiber “Copper Raindrop”
Carbon Fiber “Snake Skin Gold”
Carbon Fiber “Forged”

Carbon Fiber Composite
The creator of these materials writes on the site:
“I am truly a fan of carbon fiber and other composites and strive to offer the most outstanding materials for artists and manufacturers, creating exquisite objects around the world.“
More and more often materials that come from different uses are observed by careful knife makers who understand the mechanical and aesthetic potential associated with the knife.
It is about art, artistic expression for many makers and having the opportunity to play with materials and colors that adapt to the use on the knife is very important to create new and captivating aesthetic games.
Fat Carbon Materials is an excellent possibility to create knife handles with an incredible aesthetic effect.
