Heat Treat & Steels

The heat treat of my blades is extremely important to me. I do all my heat treating in house and utilize modern methods such as cryogenic treatment in liquid nitrogen as well as micrograph analysis of my heat treated steels with a special metallurgical microscope to ensure maximum quality. My wet grinding process ensures that the heat treat is not compromised.

Here you can watch a demonstration of me cutting through a steel rod with one of my knives:
