Hello all, I was recently messing with my BK-7 and took the handles off and just got to thinking. What is Grivory? I know it plastic , but why does only Becker use it? So I went the Google machine and looked around. Seems like it is similar to what Cold Steel uses to make its plastic jabby things but not exactly. Then I was thinking maybe its a propriety polymer that Becker has but then I found a company out of Sweden that makes stuff called Grivory too. http://www.emsgrivory.com/index.cfm?id=94&myLang=en (hope the link is ok) Is this where the Grivory comes from? I like the stuff myself because it is lightweight and strong. I have never wanted to replace mine and there are a lot of cool mods you can do with them.
