DC53 is a tool steel with exceptional toughness, wear resistance, compressive strength and temper resistance. These properties are obtained through its chemistry. Primary Carbides in DC53 are relatively small with highly uniform distribution as compared to other lower grade tool steels such as D2. This helps to provide DC53 with its superior toughness and fatigue resistances.
DC53 has twice the toughness of D2 with superior wear resistance and substantially higher fatigue strength compared to D2 and holds an edge extremely well. 4 3/8 Long Comfort Grip Handle. 1/8" TO 3/16" Thick at the Spine.
Blade Filing Art on Spine. The knife comes with the high-quality cowhide leather sheath in the photos. If the sheath has attached straps and a loop it is for a fire starter or sharpening rod (not included).If the sheath has attached straps they are for concealed and horizontal carry options. When needed, use a Diamond Wet Stone or better to re-sharpen the blade at 20-degrees. When done using the knife, wash it in soap and water, dry completely, coat in gun oil and store away from the sheath. Leather pulls moisture out of the air and can rust the blade if stored improperly. All our knives are 100% handmade. We do not use any CNC machining to make our knives. Each knife will be 100% unique and have may have some handmade characteristics that make them unique.
