The Classic Series are hand crafted using the finest materials, fittings and workmanship. Natural maple burl wood handles, highly polished brass bolsters, and premium quality 5cr15 stainless steel blades that hold an edge deer after deer. Rugged and durable enough for all skinning and dressing jobs, as well as everyday use. 5cr15 alloy was selected for the blades, due to its specific chemical make up, with a similar hardness to 440a but with less chromium and carbon. Unlike other common stainless steels, 5cr15 alloy has a percentage of vanadium added to increase tensile strength and impact strength. These are easily sharpened in the field. These characteristics have been selected for hunter demands worldwide, and the designs have proven successful in New Zealand. All Classic Series also come with a lifetime warranty.
