THE BLADE

The Fjord Hiker is an all purpose hard use utility blade designed for making powerful cuts. At .22in thick with a 5in blade, its a stout knife that craves hard use. However it is still ground thin and sports a thin edge to maximize performance. 

THE STEEL

Z- wear is a new steel that is bridging the gap between CPM 3V and M4 in terms of toughness and wear resistance. Z- wear has more carbon than 3V and the addition of 1% tungsten. The result of this is higher wear resistance with only a small trade off in toughness. Z- wear can support a thin edge like 3V and can be used for the same tasks in a medium sized blade. This run is heat treated to 60-61 which avoids the secondary hardening curve and results in less carbide formation but greater toughness. It also sports 7.5% Chromium which makes it semi stainless, much like 3V.
