Mostly we enjoy telling people to go poop in their hats. But occasionally we try to provide some halfway useful information - like how we know our knives are the best. Here's what we do. It's complicated, so pay attention.
We give our knives to a human wrecking-ball, the strongest, toughest sucker we know, and former World Arm Wrestling Champion: Eddie DeLuca. He tries to break them.
Eddie, who may be the strongest guy we have ever met, could not break our Prototype Zeus CQBT. We recently watched him throw one of our CQBT combat knives blade first into a concrete blacktop. While we cringed every time the blade hit, the result was nothing - not a scratch, chip, or anything. That's saying something for a guy with these qualifications:

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.
