Stabilized wood is a type of composite material, but it is different from other composites you may know such as micarta or fiberglass. Stabilized wood is a timber that has had an acrylic polymer dissolved into a solvent, and then forced into the wood through a mix of vacuum and pressure cycles. The wood is then heated to drive off the solvent and cure the resin. This leaves a wood that is harder, denser, stronger, resistant to water, resistant to warpage, and will take a higher sheen than the natural wood. Stabilized wood is often the best choice for pieces that will be handled often, will be around water or large changes in humidity, and for highly figured or finished woods where the finish may become damaged or scuffed in time due to the relative softness of the material.
3 pc of wood blocks for the handles, blocks of maple burl with irregular and non-uniform structure are used, thus the dyes penetrate the wood in different ways, creating unique patterns. This makes every handle one-of-a-kind.
