taken great pride in our efforts to push the envelope of performance by
offering exotic blade steels in our knives. With that spirit in mind, we are
proud to offer the Delica 4 Lightweight with a blade crafted from K390.
by Böhler-Uddeholm, K390 MICROCLEAN® is a state-of-the-art cold work tool steel
produced by the particle metallurgy process. Its advanced alloy mix was
specifically developed to provide the extreme wear resistance and high
compressive strength needed in industrial cutting, blanking, and punching
operations. Despite its toughness, its exceptionally fine, homogeneous
microstructure also makes it readily machinable and easy to heat treat.
these qualities make K390 an outstanding blade material for true steel
