Why Crusader Forge
All Crusader Forge Knives are made from CPM S30V Stainless Steel.
CPM S30V is a martensitic stainless steel designed to offer
the best combination of toughness, wear resistance and
corrosion resistance. Its chemistry has been specially
balanced to promote the formation of vanadium carbides
which are harder and more effective than chromium carbides
in providing wear resistance. CPM S30V offers substantial
improvement in toughness over other high hardness
steels such as 440C and D2, and its corrosion resistance
is equal to or better than 440C in various environments.
The CPM process produces very homogeneous, high
quality steel characterized by superior dimensional stability,
grind ability, and toughness compared to steels produced
by conventional methods.
As a Custom Knife Making Company we do not subcontract any part of our manufacturing process. Consistency /Control over every aspect of production gives us opportunity to produce the highest quality knives.
From our specialized heat treating to sheath making you can depend on our knives for long lasting durability and unmatched strength.
Every design is tested for comfort, cutting ability, safety for the user, balance and handling characteristics. If it does not pass our requirements it ends its life in our orange bucket.
No, we do not sale factory seconds!
