The 6" sword-grind blade is machined from German Uddeholm Niolox niobium-enhanced stainless tool steel tempered to a Rockwell hardness index of 59. The ultimate combination of cutting tooth, strength and durability. The knife also features unique jimping on the spine and a striker / bone cracker / pry bar on the pommel.

About Niolox Stainless Steel
The 5.95" (151mm) blade is high-performance, German-made Lohmann Niolox stainless steel and is cryo-hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of <59. Lohmann Niolox steel is prized for its ability to hold up to abuse and retain cutting edge. By using Niolox steel, the best qualities of stainless and high-carbon steels have been combined to provide you with a superior hard use tool.
Because Niolox has high-carbon steel characteristics, it is easier to sharpen but can develop corrosion if not coated or cared for. Dry your knife before sheathing or storing it. It is recommended that you use a whetstone or diamond sharpener to dress the edge, and NEVER use a motorized grinder.
