The Hardened Stainless Steel handle set is given a darkening during its multi-step finish process. First finished with a deeply textured charcoal color. Then it is micro shot peened to improve scratch resistance creating a stronger surface while retaining the darkened tone. The second to last step is laser marking and engraving, brand, model, serial number, and then a deep laser engraved grip pattern are applied to the handles and blade. The surface is further treated to passivation to ensure the handles have a superior corrosion resistance.
The 450SS H900 Hardened Stainless Steel handle set is given a natural textured finish that reflects light with an even sheen, using micro shot peening to further harden the surface and optimize its scratch resistance. The second to last step is laser marking and engraving, brand, model, serial number, and then a deep laser engraved grip pattern are applied to the handles and blade. The surface is further treated to passivation to ensure the handles and blade have a superior corrosion resistance.
