C-Tek™ sheet material is one of the more interesting synthetics that has been introduced to knife and gun handle making in a long time. This is a patent pending infused cell sheet product that is made from a proprietary resin, 5052 aircraft grade aluminum cell membrane and assorted color pigments. It works very similar to wood and can be easily sawed, sanded and finished with standard shop tools. This material can be smooth sanded, bead blasted or even 3-D milled. One of the most interesting qualities of the finished material is that it is semi-transparent and will reflect light.
If you're looking for a creative edge in your knife or gun handle making, try some C-Tek™ on your next project. It can be used for almost anything to add that artistic "wow factor". Everyone that sees it will love how it looks!
