These are all full tang knives for maximum strength.
All styles of our knife have a Scandinavian style flat grind, which is imperative for a good carving tool. This flat grind adds to the ease of sharpening, strength and control of use whilst carving.
All our standard knives are made from 01 tool steel, which is a high carbon hard wearing tool steel that has a good edge holding ability. It is available in either a polished blade or unground finish. Other steel choices and blade finishes are available including D2, Damascus, Stainless, forged finish and unground 01 tool steel for an additional charge.
We do all our own heat treatment in specialist heat treatment kilns and test each blade after hardening to ensure full hardness is achieved, and then again after tempering to ensure each blade has the Rockwell hardness required.
We test the blades on our own Rockwell hardness tester which has been calibrated to within 0.5 of a Rockwell.
