Woods and materials

Bruno Chaperon uses a large array of woods he carefully selects for the beauty of their veins, the intensity of colour, their fine grain. He is attentive to the origin of wood and its exploitation environment, and pays attention to both the drying and storing conditions of logs. He transforms the logs in his workshop, with minimum loss. He uses every piece of scrap wood. Some woods are stone hard, some are quite oily and fragrant giving off peppery and woody aromas.
Bruno selects the species and carefully carves them into revealing their most desirable properties: the depth of ebony black, the lineal contrast of cocobolo, the orange tone of pernambuco, the magenta of amaranth, the fine grain of boxwood, the nuances of rosewood veins, the speckles of amourette, the camphor fragrance of juniper… 
 
Recently, Bruno introduces new materials in his knife handles: zebu horn, deer antlers, warthog tusk, vegetal ivory… 
 
Either in one solid colour or in marquetry, each knife bears the true essence of its materials.
