VG-10 is a particular type of stainless steel with a high carbon content; roughly 1% carbon, 1% molybednum, 15% chromium, .2% vanadium and 1.5% cobalt. All of these relatively small amounts of other metals give the VG-10 steel its unique properties, such as its ability to hold an edge and longer durability of the steel.
Damascus steel is made by forge-welding steel together to create a multi-layered, flowing pattern. The resulting steel is sharper, tougher, and resistant to shattering.
Our VG-10 Damascus Steel series uses VG-10 steel as a cutting core layer plus 66 layers of Damascus steel folded over it (33 layers on each side) for a total of 67 layers. The resulting blade is more durable and will hold an edge over a longer period of time.
Our VG-10 3 Layers Forged series uses VG-10 steel as a cutting core layer with 2 layers of a softer steel wrapped over it. The resulting blade is more durable and will hold an edge longer.
AUS 10 stainless steel is comparable to 440C. It has more vanadium and less chromium than 440C, so it is slightly tougher. Our AUS-10 Damascus Series uses an AUS-10 core in the middle of the blade plus 67 layers of Damascus steel wrap outside to increase strength, durability, and sharpness.
High quality hardwood mixed with resin for the appearance of natural wood, but with added durability, water resistance, and bacteria resistance. Our Pakkawood handles come in oval shape or 3-pin designs.
A mix of different materials, including fiberglass and carbon fiber infused with resin for hardness and durability.
Multiple layers of glass cloth combined with resin, resulting in a high strength and chemically resistant material.
