Materials

-Blade Steels-
O1 Tool Steel
An excellent blade steel that offers great abrasion resistance, toughness, and deep hardening. Must be kept lubricated to prevent corrosion.
1084/15N20 Damascus
A combination of varying layers of 1084 high-carbon and 15N20 nickle alloy that is forge welded resulting in a pattern that is exposed by etching the blade in a solution of Ferric Chloride. Must be kept lubricated to prevent corrosion.
1095 High Carbon
Great all around high-carbon steel. Must be kept lubricated to prevent corrosion.
D2 Tool Steel
Designed for hard use and offers great corrosion resistance compared to other tool steels. Light lubrication is suggested to prevent corrosion.
**All JG Knives are heat treated and tempered to approx 58-60HRC for high-carbon and tool steels.**
-Handle Materials (Scales)-
Micarta (Phenolic Laminates)
Tough, durable, resistant to corrosion, acids, oils, heat, cold, moisture, compression and impact. Made from layers of natural or man-made fiber usually consisting of; canvas, linen, or paper and bonded with a phenolic resin. Available in a variety of colors that can be layered and shaped in various ways to create very unique patterns.
G10
