YThe X-knife is the strongest, sharpest and safest stainless steel knife in production. If your life is in danger, you can always rely on your X-knife. It is designed to withstand all the stresses applied by the human hand, which means that it is virtually indestructible. It assumes, however, that you are careful with the knife and that it is used  as intended, namely as a sharp precision tool. A knife of this kind is of course not a throwing knife, nor is it particularly good at splitting wood – for those functions, you’ll find an axe to be both better and cheaper.

The basis of the X-knife’s strength lies in the laminated cobalt steel, and also in the well-thought-out construction in which break zones have been eliminated. Together with the hand-shaped convex edge, the X-knife is a concept that beats everything else in the world in terms of safety and comfort.

A few words about the all-black version: This surface is the hardest we have ever encountered. Although we really tried to wear down the black coating with the toughest, driest curly birch we could find, we never succeeded in getting holes in this extremely hard, durable surface. Still, we cannot guarantee that it will stay for time and eternity, after all, the blade can be ground and certainly bites a diamond or ceramic stone on the surface. But you have probably never met a harder surface, the hardness is at 2400 HV (Vickers) or around HRC 83.
