It is professionally heat treated to 59-60 HRc for the AEB-L and CPM 3v blades, and 62-63 HRc for the Magnacut blades. The knife has an overall length of 7.4" and a cutting edge of 3.3".

Steel selection

AEB-L is a true stainless steel. Of the three steels available, it is best suited for corrosive environments. It is wear resistant and keeps an excellent edge.

Magnacut is an extremely tough super steel. It is well suited for hard use. It is a true stainless steel that is exceptionally tough, and takes an incredible edge.

CPM 3v will take an extremely fine edge. It is an exceptional working steel that will remain sharp through hard use, but can also be sharpened to a scary sharp edge. The blade coatings give the knife excellent corrosion resistance, but the bare edge will need to be cared for to prevent corrosion.


knife is supplied with a black sheath manufactured by us. The sheath is supplied with a Discreet Carry Concepts HLR gear clip that can be mounted for left or right hand orientation. Additionally, the top rivet holes are based on the common .75"/1.5" spacing so they can be used with various other attachment methods. Sheath is vacuum formed, CNC trimmed and assembled in house from .060" Kydex. The adjustable retention allows for fine tuning to your preferred level of retention. All hardware is black oxide stainless.

 

Blade Finishes

Our standard finish is a variant of a ferritic nitrocarburizing process. This is similar to the tough finish found on many firearm slides and its variants have many trade names within the various industries it serves. Melonite, Tenifer and FNC are all common names for a close family of treatments. It is an extremely tough and corrosion resistant surface finish that leaves very nice black or dark gunmetal grey surface finish. Our upgraded finishes are PVD and DLC. These coatings are very tough Physical Vapor Deposition coatings that are usually used for industrial forming dies and end mills. While the cost is higher for these coatings, they allow us to have more available colors without sacrificing performance. DLC and PVD are very limited supply.
