We are very excited to announce that our new hand saw Nature 222H. Which is a universal toothed (U7) 22”-550 mm hand saw with bio-composite handle. The handle is made from almost 100% bio-based materials (wood fibers and bio-based plastic). Despite the fact it contains natural fibers, it has the same properties as polystyrene which is a fossil-based material.
By using the bio-composites we will reduce the carbon footprint with 65% compared to our polystyrene handles. The wood fibers in the bio-composite material comes from sustainable forest industries and are certified. One other advantage, the bio-composite material is much easier to recycle than polystyrene. The biocomposite material is controlled against REACH.
A different detail with our new saw is that the handle has a wooden smell.
