Ostap Hel - a talented Polish knifemaker and designer. His designs are based on the fundamentals of geometry, smooth transitions and the concept of "golden proportion". He is not afraid to experiment with new shapes and ideas to suit the unique style and production capabilities of the company he designs for.
D2 - a high-carbon, high-chromium high-speed tool steel heat-treated to 59-61 HRC. With a high chromium content of 13.0% (Cr), it offers greater corrosion resistance than most high-carbon steels. Combines strength, excellent edge holding and easy sharpening. It has high wear resistance due to its high carbide content in the microstructure.But 59-61 HRC. This super steel is comparable to Carpenter's CPM 20CV or CTS-204P steels. Manufactured by Böhler Edelstahl in Kapfenberg, Austria.
DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) durability of the blade surface is enhanced with a black matte nanocomposite coating, which exhibits the unique properties of natural diamonds, such as exceptional hardness and low friction, also corrosion resistance. It is one of the most resistant coatings to scratches and abrasion that are used in the industry, including the knife industry.
Blade - Cleaver (chopper) type with an elegant Two Tone finish, the blades are coated with black DLC coating, the rest is satin-finished. The straight line of the cutting edge converges towards the flat, safety end of the blade. The thickness of the blade, combined with the high, flat grind, gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Ceramic ball bearings support the opening of the blade with a dual thumb stud in the wedge on both sides. A section of the back of the wedge is covered with an upper jimping, notched thumb rest for easy control of the knife. The whole thing is locked with the proven and popular liner lock.
Handle - made of G10 composite (pressure-pressed fiberglass with synthetic resin) with a thick and rough texture. Chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges for comfort and improve grip security. Open-backed design fixed with steel spacer sleeves reduces weight and facilitates cleaning. A single-sided (right) clip allows the knife to be carried in tip-up position, with the tip of the blade upward.
