||The kenji composite is made from a phenolic resin infused recycled paper product harvested from certified forests in North America. It is FSC certified, food safe and heat resistant to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. The composite is a solid surface material so nicks and scratches can be lightly sanded away – the black color is pure all the way through. sheets are available in sizes up to 5′ x 12′, that is the only limit to the size you can customize without a seam sustainably harvested red balau – an extremely hard, clear grade, tight-grained wood with extremely consistent color. Larger timber sizes, such as the legs on our kenji products, are subject to increased checking which is why we use red balau in place of ipe for this line. Red balau possesses many of the same properites of ipe – it is naturally resistant to rot, insects, UV exposure, ice, salt, abrasion and splintering – all without the need for toxic chemicals. 304 stainless steel that is brushed and electropolished. Marine-grade 316 stainless steel that is brushed and electropolished for use within one mile of salt air – available for an upcharge.
