For our blade, we chose 440C steel. 440C is specially formulated to be durable, wear resistant, and hard—ideal qualities in a knife blade. It produces a hard edge with excellent edge retention, making it an exceptionally capable blade.
The solid monobody is composed of 303 stainless steel. At almost three times the density of aluminum, it has a satisfying heft and is virtually indestructible. Also, unlike aluminum, it’s not anodized or coated, so the appearance won’t chip or wear away with time.
