The Balbach company has traditionally welded this extraordinary steel since 1999.
Two different types of steel are used, each with at least 13.5% chromium.
The full tang has full thickness across the width of the blade, which gives this knife extraordinary stability.
The distinctive hand protection and the finger grooves not only ensure comfort, but also provide an added measure of safety while using the knife.
The bolsters are made of stainless steel and the handle itself is made of stabilized maple root wood in light brown
Under extreme pressure, the material is drenched in synthetic resin and hardened to stabilize the wood. By sealing off the pores and cell spaces, the synthetic resin reduces the swelling and shrinking of the wood.
The light-colored sheath is made of traditionally crafted saddle leather. Solely vegetable tanning materials are used during the tanning process. The leather is retanned in drums over a period of 6 to 8 weeks.
