Dragon knives are constructed of Nitrogen-Enriched American steel (CTS-BD1N), hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 63. This extremely robust one-piece construction features extreme sharpness and edge retention. The handle is made of FDA approved resin and linen Canvas Micarta with three stainless steel rivets. The canvas material is dyed and brilliantly finished to last for decades. The end-cap of the handle is made of 18/10 stainless steel, which provides outstanding stability and balance.
The difference between the black & red handled knives is the thickness of the steel and the profile of the blade.
