MUMTIKIRIDASHI: Ti Kiridashi
Mummert Knives
 
The Mummert Ti Kiridashi is designed to be a small cutting tool or a backup defensive weapon that is easily carried anywhere. It delivers an amazing amount of cutting ability in a small package. It is constructed out of 9/32" thick 6Al4V titanium with tungsten carbide fused to the edge attaining a Rockwell Hardness of 72 at the razor sharp edge. It has a fine peen bead blast finish with a 1200 grit satin bevel and comes with a custom handmade leather sheath with a Mummert Knives titanium clip. Titanium is 100% rust proof and the knife weighs in at only five ounces including the sheath.

Why Titanium?

Titanium is a wonderful metal. It is strong, light, and impervious to rust. However, titanium is not commonly used in cutlery. Why? The reason why titanium is not commonly used in cutlery is because it does not keep a very good edge... at least not all by itself. So why use titanium to make a knife if it doesn't hold a good edge you may ask? Because the titanium isn't what is holding the edge. As a custom manufacturer who specializes in titanium knives and tools, Marc Mummert utilizes a process that permanently applies a layer of tungsten carbide, which is impregnated into the titanium 0.002" deep. The final edge is then ground to that layer of carbide so that all of the cutting is done by the carbide layer, which at a Rockwell Hardness of 72, is much harder than almost all hardened steel, stainless or high carbon. The superior toughness and durability of the titanium body allow for hard use situations while the carbides provide the edge retention, giving the user the "best of both worlds", similar to the effect achieved through differential hardening of steel, but to an even greater degree. Mummert's process is neither cheap nor easy, but he believes it's worth it for an end product that is 40% lighter than steel, will never corrode, and has an edge hardness of RC 72 while maintaining toughness and durability throughout the body of the knife. Two things will dull a blade, use and corrosion of the metal on the edge surface. With a blade that will never corrode, you immediately eliminate your edge's worst enemy and the only thing that can cause it to go away without use - rust.
