Details

 

  • Finest 320-layer Damascus steel from the barrel of a German Leopard tank.
  • This non-stainless steel is not available for sale and has no material number. It is extremely wear-resistant and is combined with a chromium, manganese and vanadium alloy tool steel with a high concentration of carbon content during the forging process.
  • Having a large choil, the blade is well-suited for hunters to perform a variety of cutting work
  • The full tang has full thickness across the width of the blade, which gives this knife extraordinary stability.
  • The balanced handle has an excellent grip, even in the cold or when wearing gloves.
  • The bolsters are made of stainless steel and the handle itself is made of stabilized maple root wood in green.
  • Under extreme pressure, the material is drenched in synthetic resin and hardened to stabilize the wood. By sealing off the pores and cell spaces, the synthetic resin reduces the swelling and shrinking of the wood.
  • The sheath is made of traditionally crafted saddle leather. Solely vegetable tanning materials are used during the tanning process. The leather is retanned in drums over a period of 6 to 8 weeks.
