RAVEN

Raven is a new Custom Design bush-craft/hunting knife. Comprising of a tough 80CRV2 steel blade and Black Canvas Micarta handle grips, this is a knife that will both hand the tough jobs but additionally will stay sharp for longer while doing them.

80CRV2 High Carbon steel has a high carbon content .8% which gives a high hardness, additionally it has both Chrome and Vanadium added which does two things mainly.

80CrV2 knife steel provides a cutting tool with extreme toughness and edge retention; provides a high value for performance vs. cost to manufacture. Due to its toughness, hardness, and availability, it is prized in the construction of tactical knives, hunting knives, tomahawks, and everyday carry designs.

80CrV2 steel is a traditionally cast, high-carbon tool steel that contains chromium as well as vanadium in quantities high enough to affect the strength and hardness of the crystalline matrix of the steel. Vanadium is an element that is added to steel alloys that are typically used to produce excellent edge retention. Vanadium is prized in knife-making because it produces very durable carbides at the molecular level of the cutting edge. Tool steel, heavy equipment, and even nuclear reactors use vanadium in their construction.

The Handle grips on the knife are equally strong and durable. Micarta is a product similar to G10. While G10 is a mixture of glass fibre and resin the biggest draw back is weight.

Micarta solves this issue by using natural fibres like paper, linen, burlap or in this case Canvas. layers of the material are sandwiched with resin and compressed to form a hard tough and waterproof material that will handle the tough jobs and laugh at them.

The blade on Raven has been heat treated to approx 61HRC giving it the ability to be sharpened to a razor keen edge that is easily maintained and will last for extended work cycles.

This knife comes complete with a hand tooled leather sheath designed to be easily clipped onto your belt, there is also an additional drop strap to allow for carrying the knife lower on the leg on your natural side.
