Description: This exceptional utility knife was designed by Dan Perreault. His vision clearly shines through.
The Damascus blade incorporates a center core formed from VG 10 stainless steel and has been hardened to Rc62-64 for excellent edge holding. The core is surrounded on each side with 16 layers of 410 stainless steel to provide superior toughness. VG10 is a stain resistant steel with a high carbon content and lends itself to exceptional edge holding properties as well as a balance between toughness and stain resistance. The high flat grind and deep false edge gives the blade a diamond profile. This results in superior edge strength and great cutting efficiency without sacrificing overall strength of the blade. A large choil in the ricasso allows choking up on the blade for detail work.
The contoured handle feels great! It is designed for comfort even during extended use. The handle is polished black linen micarta, one of the toughest, yet most attractive materials anywhere. A full tang assures strength. By distal tapering the tang Thinking Blade lightens the knife and improves balance.
Exceptional work throughout!
