Condor Tool & Knife CTK1004CB-BNS Dendritic Tactical Combat Knife 8" Stainless Steel Black Blade, Ballistic Nylon Sheath
CN1004CBBNS: Dendritic Tactical Combat Knife
Condor Tool & Knife
The Condor Dendritic Combat knife is very unique in that it is a one piece state of the art investment casting. As the knife is cast the molds are put under vacuum, drawing the molten metal into the mold under pressure, which improves the casting quality over non-vacuum casting and allows for greater detail.
When the molten 440C [High Carbon] stainless steel is cast a process takes place that is called "The Dendritic Effect" where minute carbide particles are formed through out the casting particularly at the edge(s). These carbide particles at the edge(s) improve edge sharpness, edge retention and cutting ability.
The knife is a unique design form world renowned, award winning cutlery and tool designer Arlan D. Lothe that features dead center balance, double hand ground, convex polished edges for greater strength and edge retention, built in hand guard, a blood grove on both sides of the blade, and Condor's unique, mil-spec UltraBlac2 finish. This is a special black oxide finish that is actually cooked into the metal at 285°F. This finish meets and exceeds several military specifications from the U.S. and other countries around the world.
Each knife comes with a ballistic Nylon sheath. The knives and sheaths are made with pride in Santa Ana, El Salvador.
