The Cochiloco is made with G10 FR4. This material is incredibly strong and can withstand the harshest use. 100% non-metallic for…reasons. The chisel grind has proven, in our testing, to be stronger than other types in use. The handle is made from burnt poplar. The rod is epoxied to the handle. The handle is 3/4″ round and 3″ long. The shaft is approximately 3″ long. These are all made by hand so no two are exactly the same and all measurements are approximate. There is no “finish” coat on the handle so that any fluids and grim experienced in life add to the finish giving it a special and unique look to every user.
