The blade of this knife is made of 1.2063. With its 65hrc working hardness and the high content of chromium carbides, the steel has a very good resistance to abrasive wear. In particular, the high hardness and wear resistance combined with good toughness (for a steel of this hardness) characterize this steel. The wear resistance is slightly below that of 1.2562, but the 1.2063 offers higher cutting edge stability and is easier to bring to a very high sharpness.
This knife has a complex workhorse geometry. The blade has a strong taper, which gives you a strong wedge effect on the choil, while the blade becomes slimmer and more slender towards the front. The blade has a "Walkschliff", the convexity of the blade decreases significantly towards the tip. The large blade has a high dead weight and therefore clearly supports the cut.
The blank of this blade was forged from a 60 mm thick material with a forging start temperature of 900 degrees within a heat to about 12 mm. The subsequent form forging then took place at a maximum of 790 degrees. After each heat, the blank was cooled to below 720 degrees. This process creates a very fine-grained matrix as well as very small and finely divided carbides.
