The convex ground blade is kept at 22 degrees and can be thinned down as per your preference. The tip grind is reinforced, which brings five lines up to the tip and allows the knife to be functional and take a tremendous amount of abuse. The blade steel is heat-treated to the harder end of the scale but does not become too hard, as it has been cryogenically stabilized to maintain toughness and now it holds its edges for a longer period. For knife lovers on a budget, the brand also designs and manufactures A-2 Steel Knives.
