The blade steel used on my knives is either BG42 or CPM S60V high performance
stainless steel. The edge holding ability of this steel is superior
to almost any other knife steel but that feature comes at a price. It
is tougher to sharpen but can be done successfully with any of the good
sharpening systems available today. (Lansky, DMT, etc) I also offer
free sharpening for the life of the knife. I also use from Jim Fergusson,
Devon Thomas, George Werth or any one else who can forge a good piece
of steel. My sheaths are designed to hold the knife securely without
the need for a keeper strap and it will be a little tight until it is
worked in. It is recommended that if you will be storing your knife
for an extended period of time that you store it OUTSIDE of the sheath. If
it is stored inside of the sheath condensation could get trapped in it, and that
is no good for the knife or the sheath.
