Elmax is a perfectly balanced powder metallurgy grade stainless steel made by Böhler Uddeholm. It has been designed to provide exceptional corrosion resistance, with more chromium content than many popular stainless steels, as well as excellent edge retention. The Böhler Uddeholm process and powder metallurgy properties ensure a super fine edge, with maximized toughness and minimized risk of edge chipping even at Rockwell-C values up to 62 Rc.

 

  • High-Carbon Stainless (excellent corrosion resistance, timeless finish)
  • Excellent Wear Resistance (longer edge retention)
  • 3rd Generation Superclean Powder Metallurgy (fine grain, exceptional sharpness)
  • Each knife comes with a genuine full grain, hand-stitched leather sheath

 

CPM 3V is a high toughness, wear-resistant tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. It is designed to provide maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistance steel, translating to exceptional edge retention and toughness. Although not a stainless steel, CPM 3V contains enough chromium to resist corrosion and is treated in an acid wash finish to further increase it’s corrosion resistance, yet also allows the gradual building of a patina finish over time.

 

  • High-Carbon Tool Steel (will reflect age and use over time)
  • Increased Toughness (edge resistant to chipping and breaking)
  • Acid Wash Finish (surface conditioning to resist corrosion)
  • Each knife comes with a genuine full grain, hand-stitched leather sheath

Product Description

RAW Custom Knives by Reid A. Watkins www.facebook.com/rawknives

 

Growing up on a ranch in central Montana, I made my first knife when I was 10 years old. Working with a hacksaw and file, my goal was to build an unrivaled knife for performance and function. The methods, materials and approach have changed since that first endeavor, but the goal and employment of blood, sweat and elbow-grease to realize it have remained the same.

 

I build my knives one at a time, making sure each knife starts from concept through design to fit a form that is perfectly suited for the intended job. With meticulous attention to detail and seeking only the best of materials, I ensure a blade that will exceed expectations in sharpness and edge retention, from a knife that looks as sharp as it performs.

 

My ultralight series are the ideal option for the avid hunter. Each detail from blade thickness, to handle material and overall design are carefully considered for an optimum balance between usability, weight and size. Using some of my favorite selections of modern high-performance steel, an ultralight knife will work as long and hard in the field as you do. If you’re idea of a hunting knife is one that can double as an axe, an ultralight is not for you, but if you know how to work a blade through a joint, and around the bone an ultralight will provide everything you need in a weight and size that you will be thankful for at the end of a long day afield.
