Designed for increased comfort and protection versus traditional wood handles, Hyde Industrial Blade Solutions (IBS), a division of Hyde Tools, Inc., has introduced a new line of Heat Resistant Hand Knife Handles for knives used by professionals to cut, sheer, trim, slit or slice materials on the line or in the field.
