These rugged blades are more durable in severe service than most ordinary blades. Forge laminated from three layers of special steel alloys. The outer layers are flexible layers of spring stock that provide flex and shock resistance. The center core is high carbon cutlery steel, hardened to a greater degree than most other blades. Quick and easy to sharpen, this hardened cutlery steel core will hold a razor's edge.
Handle tangs are annealed for drilling, filing or threading. Blades are ground, polished, and shipped sharp. Be careful! These blades are very sharp, and tend to stay that way. We enjoy using these economical imported blades in our shipping department, where they cut fiberglas tape, plastic bands, cardboard by the mile, and they encounter an occasional staple. Now that is severe service!
