Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of steels do you use on the blades?
I usually use stainless steels. My favorite is M390 and Elmax but sometimes I use other types like N690, D2, AEB-L or some carbon steels.
What kinds of materials do you use on the handles?
I usually use G10, micarta, carbon fiber, vulcanized fiber, stabilized woods, exotic woods and also many metals like bronze, inox or brass and cooper.
Actually I can use many various materials but I don’t like cheap woods and steels with poor water resistance.
What about heat treatment?
58-60 HRC for N690, 60-62 for Elmax and M390.
Do you design your knives?
Yes. Each knife was designed by myself and each knife is unique. I avoid series of knives but I do not rule out a few in the future.
