The City of Bones is a vast improvement over a blade Badoracle himself carried in Somalia. The city of Baidoa had a nickname: the "City of Bones." The original knife was with Badoracle throughout Operation Restore Hope. He wished he had this one instead. Designed for a good friend currently in harm's way. But it was such a good design, we decided to make it one of our special Super Steel blades.
The City of Bones is a wide blade utility knife. It is made from 3rd generation LaTrobe Dura Tech 20CV 4th generation powder metallurgy super steel. It is made complete with a custom self-draining G10 handle, custom kydex sheath, and ceramic coated blade.
This is the best field knife in the world - matched only by our CQBT series of knives shown below in combat theater.
For those interested, our knives feature a zero-grind style at between 7.5 and 11 degrees. We do each of these completely by-hand and by-eyeball. There are no jigs at work here. Our grinder
features a ten-inch wheel with a variable speed controller - and we run it at high pressures with a 70 duro contact wheel and 2 inch x 72-inch blaze ceramic belts.
We do not, however, weigh our knives. If you are worried about how much they weigh, you must be preparing to take them into space. Hope you have a good trip.
Our steels have been LaTrobe Dura Tech 20CV, ELMAX, M390, CTS-204P, Z-FINIT Nitrogen Steel, CPM-20CV and a couple in N690 and Cowry X. We are always experimenting - and always looking for new materials and treatments.
Our coatings are also specialized stuff: We use Black-T and Black Diamond DLC. Our blades are sent out to those two companies to accomplish that work, depending on the requirements of the project.
We do all our own firing and cryo work. Everything by-hand and by-heart.
FOR KNIFE BUILDS...
(yep. We are that busy)
Troops come first.
