Knives made in the USA
The Saros design was based around simplicity. I wanted to eliminate every unnecessary component to create a solid reliable knife. This left me with five machined components that I make in my shop in Casper Wyoming and two bearings that I buy from within the United States.
The hardware is all made of 17-4 stainless steel.
6al4v Grade 5 Titanium Handle
The knife handle is made from aerospace titanium and was chosen for its incredibly durable/corrosion resistant properties. Letting you not worry about how you use your Saros, it will hold up to the task and test of time.
S35Vn Blade Steel
The blade is S35Vn, a stainless steel development by Crucible Industries. S35Vn is a tough steel, almost stainless but remaining very hard, wear resistant, and resistant to chipping.
The Saros blade is 3/16” thick and has a 3.00” cut length. This makes for a 3.625 overall length.Learn More
The knife has a specific order and process it must be assembled in order to get all the components to mesh properly. The first few times the blade is actuated the bearings cold forge custom races to meet the specific tolerances of the knife. This not only creates a perfect union between all components it also hardens the material where it meets the bearings.
