Furi knife construction
Australian knife maker Furi has an interesting forging method called
Exoskeleton forging. (Patents are pending)This method was developed to
overcome hygiene and durability problems often found in your typical plastic
and woodhandled kitchen knives; even in the fashionable metal handled
The method entails fusing handle and tang so that the FX Furi handle
is the tang. The end result is a high-performance cutting tool that is
both durable and hygienic compared to traditional knives.
