Blade Type Information: 2Cr13 Stainless Steel

Steel has made yet another advance with the advent of 2Cr13. The ground-breaking properties of 2Cr13 stainless steel allows for a variety of applications ranging from the production of domestic knives to heavy-duty metals used in military manufacturing. One advantage offered by 2Cr13 stainless steel in addition to its inherent strength is its ability to use Black-Oxide coating which makes it extremely resistant to corrosion.

This advance reduces the onset of corrosion by essentially working to reduce how porous the steel is. 2Cr13 stainless steel is particle-reinforced for added strength and resilience. Immersion tests have revealed that this steel has a finer matrix structure resulting in an increased tinsel strength, and the electrostag remelting process used in manufacturing it makes it highly versatile. In addition to the pure molecular strength of the steel, the added Black-Oxide coating further increases the resistance to a variety of corrosive materials.

Black-Oxide coating is a process in which a conversion coat is added to minimize the amount of light a surface reflects in addition to increasing its overall strength. The mixture is further enhanced with the inclusion of oil or wax for industrial purposes.

In order to achieve these results, the metal is placed in a bath of nitrates, nitrides, and sodium hydroxide. The chemical reaction that takes place converts the surface of the metal to magnetite. This hot-bath procedure for applying Black-Oxide coating offers many advantages towards increasing the efficiency of the manufacturing process. It allows for the production of large quantities of metals, makes no significant impact on the metal's surface dimensions, and is a cheaper alternative to processes involving electroplating.

Handle Material Information: Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon

Nylon is a generic name for a family of synthetic polymers known as polyamides, Nylon is one of the most commonly used polymers.

Nylon can be used as the matrix material in composite materials, with reinforcing fibers like glass or carbon fiber. A composite like this has a higher density than pure nylon. The good heat resistance of such materials makes them feasible competitors to metals.

Nylon has the ability to be very lustrous, semilustrous or dull. It has high durability, excellent abrasion resistance, is resistant to insects, fungi, and animals, as well as molds, mildew, rot and many chemicals, will melt instead of burning and has good strength.

Rockwell Hardness: HRC 52-55

The M48 Apocalypse Tactical Tomahawk, Green has a Rockwell Hardness of HRC 52-55

Stanley P. Rockwell inevnted the Rockwell Hardness Test in 1919 while working as a metallurgist in ball bearing plant. Rockwell wanted to measure the uniformity and hardness of inner and outer rings on which the ball bearings rolled. He designed a device that could measure hardness accurately and quickly.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standardized a set of scales for testing Rockwell hardness values. Each scale has been designated a letter and corresponds to a different group of materials. Scale C is used for steel, titanium, deep case hardened steel, hard cast irons and other materials harder than scale B 100.

Knife blades and other steel hardened tools are made from metals that match to the Rockwell C scale. Most blade makers display the hardness number as "HRC xx" or "HRC xx - xx" providing a range, where "xx" indicates a Rockwell hardness number. Not many blades measure over HRC 70. Most functional blades rate somewhere between HRC 56 and HRC 63.

Generally, blades with a lower HRC number don't hold and edge for long under demanding use, but they are easier to sharpen. Blades with a higher HRC value stay sharp for longer, but are more difficult to sharpen. As an example, stainless steel has a HRC higher than carbon steel, but it is also more difficult to sharpen than carbon steel.

Company Information: United Cutlery

United Cutlery is one of the oldest continually operating knife and sword companies in the world. Founded in the 1990s, its founders opened the company in the hopes of giving everyday people the chance to own the same exciting weapons seen on film and television. The company now makes hundreds of different products, including functional swords and fantasy knives. Customers can find hunting knives, throwing knives, movie replicas, military knives, utility knives and dozens of other products.

United Cutlery has several partnerships established that let it create authentic replicas from hit films. It has the rights to "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "The Expendables" and "The Expendables 2."

United Cutlery also makes a number of fantasy pieces that look great on display. The company has four designs on staff, and these designers work closely with the men and women responsible for making the pieces seen on screen.

Many people know United Cutlery for its film replicas, but the company also makes knives and other weapons used by the military, fishermen and outdoors-men every day. Its product line includes tools designed for hunting and fishing.

United Cutlery's wide range of products appeal to those who love fantasy novels, action films and the great outdoors. Each piece uses strong and durable metal that ensures United Cutlery pieces will last for years, making many customers buy products again and again for display and personal use.

Unlike other companies that offer products for sale directly to consumers, United Cutlery wholesales its products to dealers. Shopping through authorized dealers lets customers know that their purchases come directly from the company.

The Paracord wrapped handle fits the hand and the head is solid wit a sharp edge. I like that the back end is not edged. The spike is sharp and pointy, but the lack of a blade on the back end allows me to choke up on the hawk, and use the cutting edge more precisely. Anyone who wants a solid tool will be satisfies.

Added bonus, the day glow green handle makes it easy to find when you set it down!
