The blade is produced from Boye Dendritic Steel which is very high quality investment cast 440C Stainless. Boye Dendritic Steel was rated in the top 1% of all knives tested for edge holding by Kim Breed, the senior knife reviewer at Blade Magazine. The carbide crystal network within the steel, produced during the casting process, creates a micro-serrated edge--tiny teeth that keep cutting and cutting.
Handle and ringset are made of Cocobolo with Copper, Brass, and Coral/Gold Artstone. Coral Artstone is made by suspending ground Coral in a resin matrix.
The Dragon design which is etched onto the blade is original artwork by Francine Larstein. After the artwork was completed on the blade, it was etched into the steel in a 1970's era circuit board etching machine using Ferric Chloride. The heated acid sprayed the blade for 3 1/2 minutes. Francine's original signature is etched onto the back of the blade.
The overall length of the knife is 14" with an 8" blade. Total weight is 9 oz.
This knife and your satisfaction are both fully guaranteed.
