It is unbelievable how many of the latest technologies can be contained within one knife. ICHI ARMY is a testimony of it diversities. Design is to the smallest detail premeditated thanks to the almost year of testing of the prototype and is adapted to maximal effectivity The blade is made of the highest quality Swedish steel that will not betray in really extreme conditions. ICHI ARMY is hardened in the same way as the war proven samurai sword -with the essence of modern methods and precise control of the process – when the blade is very hard and the back of the blade is softer and more flexible. With this tempering technique , we believe in absolute reliability of this knife . On top of the blade is coated with nanocomposite coating, the structure and hardness similar to diamond and is almost unschratchable. Thus protects the blade against corrosion and reduces visual effect at night when it is most needed. The handle is made of our own composite material. Cotton is compressed under high pressure and encapsulated with resin. This material does not slip even when immersed in oil. Does not burn, maintenance-free and very durable. With a long history of developments in cutting performance of the blades , we have developed a unique “caligraphy edge”, as opposed to the traditional (albeit very sharp ) sharpening will last longer and cut 2x to 4x better,of course this sharpening technique is a secrets. With this kind of grinding venomously sharp knife will last even after cutting several dry trees and will still shave . It even cut through dry bamboo , without any changes .
differentialy hardened steel V2. Our “Saint grail” steel. Unbelievably strong, confident and hard. Combined with our heat treating techniques it is remarkable and fuses opposites. As toughness and hardness. We are rock solid sure, that the knife won’t brake. Our confidence is claimed by our unbeatable warranty. ( For info about the warranty click here – first article)
Self made composite similar to Micarta which has the benefit in higher flexibility and thickness of an individual layer. The handling is very stable even the knife is first submerged in oil (tested). Premeditated ergonomy of the handle. Countours tremendously different of standarts you know. Anatomicaly made for a human hand with a shape and contour that spreads the force, lowers the tiring of an arm, hand and tendons and does not restrict the user in the next iportant activities. So even after few hours of an extensive force cutting you are able to continue working with the knife or other activity. Scales are hold by very strong glue that can whitstand almost 400kg of force by cm. The screws are heat treated so the 100% reliability is ensured.
The knife is supplied with a sheath made of ABS plastic. That is used for example on motorcycle guard and is harder than Kydex. It less prone to wear and protects the knife better. There are 5 ways of attaching the sheath to a belt or a backpack strap (belt is recommended)
