Back in the old days Gauchos would make knife handles from different materials varying from classic to very exotic ones. The Tatu (Armadillo) its an little mammal with a leathery armour shell. Armadillos tails are also very strong. As gauchos would hunt them for food the tail was also used as a knife handle. Armadillos are now protected and there are no knives made with armadillo tails anymore. However people still like the look and feel of these old traditional knives. Nowadays the armadillo tail handle is made with resin that mimics the shape and style of the original knives.
