Extraordinary 320-layer Damascus steel from the armor of the German battleship Tirpitz.
This non-stainless high-alloy steel was recovered from the capsized Tirpitz by a Norwegian and German company. It is being used for scientific purposes as well as for space travel.
The full tang has a full thickness across the width of the blade, which gives this knife extraordinary stability.
The balanced handle has an excellent grip, even in the cold or when wearing gloves.
The bolsters are made of stainless steel and the handle itself is made of stabilized maple burl wood in black.
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.
