Forged Dutch- 80CrV2
3 7/16" blade
Hand forged from 80CrV2 with an integral handle that fits the hand naturally and grips well in all environments.
Although mistaken to be the new kid on the block, 80CrV2 has actually been around for ages under the common nickname “Swedish saw steel.”
A high carbon chrome-vanadium, 80CrV2 is a tough as nails workhorse steel.
It provides the essential qualities of a 1080-series steel, with all the perks of a high chrome steel like 5160.
We’ve brought it on board for its ability to be readily forged and ground alike, and like 5160, only needs a very simple heat treat similar to 5160.
