When manufacturing knives and guns, you may automatically think of using metal as the primary material. However, the gun and knife industry can benefit significantly from using thermoset composite materials for certain components, notably handles and grips.
Atlas Fibre creates custom thermoset composite handles and grips from fabrication-ready precision blanks. Our composite materials help improve a gun or knife’s comfort, aesthetic appeal, and durability. We’ll work with you to keep your project on track and minimize costs.
The handle or grip of a knife or gun plays an important role in the product’s function. If a person can’t get a good grip on a knife, they may struggle to slice or chop food or other materials. A slippery grip reduces the knife’s safety, making cuts and slips more common.
The same is true of a gun’s grip or stock. It needs to be sturdy and comfortable to hold. Compared to other materials, such as metal or wood, composites like Micarta or G10 create a durable, comfortable grip.
Some additional benefits of using composite materials when manufacturing guns and knives include:
