This compact EDC blade blurs the line between handle and blade. The index finger rests securely in the 7/8" ring over the ricasso of this knife allowing this 7" knife to sport a 3" blade and still accommodate the whole of your hand comfortably. Perfect for everyday carry due to the finger ring making it nearly impossible for the knife to leave your hand without you wanting to put it down! Drop Point version available by request!
This blade comes with a Kydex sheath.
All of my blades come with a lifetime guarantee.
****I am currently booked out 4 to 6 weeks****
I thermal cycle all my W2 to reduce the grain size as small as possible and evenly distribute the alloying components. This drastically increases the toughness and overall quality of the steel. Just like 1095, W2 needs a fast quench, whenever possible I brine quench W2. This maximizes hardness and edge retention. Some models are quenched in fast oil due to their especially thin edges that will crack if quenched in brine. For these models, the edges are so thin a fast oil quench achieves the same overall hardness and edge retention. A clay Hamon is available on all W2 models. Models are tempered down to between 60 – 64 HRC depending on their intended use.
AEB-L is a unique stainless steel, one stand out characteristic is its ease of sharpening and ability to get as sharp as high carbon steel. I heat treat my AEB-L for the highest hardness I can achieve. The blades are oil quenched, then transitioned to cold water, and lastly, they are cryogenically treated at -110 Degrees Fahrenheit. Over the course of minutes, the temperature of the blades is reduced by over 2000 degrees. This process brings out the toughness, hardness, edge holding, and stain resistance of this steel. Models are tempered down to between 60 – 63 HRC depending on their intended use.
