Guayubirá and alpaca wooden knife by Bernardo Yarza
The rounded guayubirá hilt, hand finished, is a sample of the artisan’s ability to combine wood and alpaca. The 15 centimeter stainless steel blade is forged to remain unaltered for decades given its great hardness and metallic composition. The hilt and the sheath are finished with alpaca.
The guayubirá is a tree found in Paraguay, the north of Argentina and parts of Brazil. Its wood has a very fine and homogeneous texture; the grain is straight to oblique, with deeply striated and creamy white to ochre heartwood.
Alpaca is a zinc, copper and nickel alloy, also knownas German silver or white metal. Its aspect is very similar to silver and is maintained the same way.
