About Our Knives
Full Tang Knives
All full tang knives come with a handmade leather sheath and tapered tang. My standard, full tang knife is made out of 5/32” CPM 154 CM stainless steel and features a tapered tang. They are heat treated to 59-61 Rockwell and are hollow ground to about .015” before they receive their final cutting edge. The standard blade finish is a fine bead blast, which gives the blade a matte gray look.
