The blade of this knife has a edge made of 1.2562. With its 66hrc working hardness and the very high content of tungsten carbides, the steel has enormous 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. This is particularly noticeable in everyday life because a blade made of 1.2562 keeps its sharpness significantly longer than blades made of softer and less wear-resistant steels.
This knife has a complex workhorse geometry. The blade has a strong taper, which gives you a strong wedge effect at 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.
After the last fire weld at 970 degrees, the initial package with a thickness of about 60mm was forged down within one heat with a forging start temperature of 900 degrees to about 15mm and then immediately cooled to below 720 degrees. The subsequent form forging then took place at a maximum of 810 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.
The damascus steel for the side layers is forged using the "masame" technique. The respective layers are upright.
The cover plate and the pin of the handle are made of self-made bronze, made of copper, nickel, tin and silver.
