Micarta is a laminate material, made from epoxy resin and hessian (burlap) material in this case.
It is lightweight and super strong
Meet the new Davy Jones Micarta Filleting Knife! An adhesion of natural earth coloured hessian layers, the squarish round edge handle of this knife has been roughly sanded to assist with grip when being used by wet hands.
And the blade has been tapered sharply to the tip so that you can fillet out the cheeks of your snapper catch if the need takes you. It is a thin blade with a medium to soft flex - perfect for pan sized fresh water or salt water fish.

All handcrafted knives need to be cleaned and oiled after use to maintain the blade and handle in good condition.
