Blade: The dramatic feature of the titanium handle with the Damascus blade is breathtaking. The blade consists of a VG-10 stainless steel core sandwiched between two outer layers of Damascus steel. Each of the Damascus layers is composed of 15 layers of forge-welded steel, beautifully patterned and etched to reveal the detail of the structure. The finished blade, which is meticulously flat ground for superior edge geometry, features a total of 31 layers of steel and offers an exceptional blend of strength, cutting performance, and beauty.
Handle: To complement the dramatic blade of this Delica, the handle is precision machined from solid 6AL-4V titanium. This state-of-the-art material is prized for its light weight, extreme toughness, and superior strength. The titanium scales are precision machined and bead blasted to a handsome grey finish. They are supported by a stainless steel back spacer and mated to the blade by a high-strength back lock mechanism.
The Finish: All components are assembled with precision stainless steel Torx hardware and meticulously hand finished. Extra touches of class include a stainless steel liner tube in the lanyard hole and a polished stainless steel clip configurable for left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.
