In partnership with the U.S. Special Forces, FirstEdge™ created a tier of folding knives that set a new standard for foldable blades with their TrackLock Locking Mechanism and Elmax® Steel build. Proof of this newfound pinnacle of innovative craftsmanship lies in the fact that FirstEdge™ Folding Knives are used currently in the training and deployment of the U.S. Special Forces.
Produced by Bohler-Uddenholm of Sweden, ELMAX® is “High Chromium-Vanadium-Molybdenum” alloyed steel, made of 18% Chromium, 3% Vanadium, 1.7% Carbon, 1% Molybdenum, 0.8%Silicon, and 0.3% Manganese. This particular fusion of elements creates a steel that guarantees high wear resistance, superior corrosion resistance, and high compressive strength. The ELMAX® advance powder metallurgy technology allows for these rare performance capabilities. The steel is hardened to 60-61 HRC, resulting in excellent edge retention and high impact resistance. It is easily sharpened and holds an edge comparable to carbon steel alloy.
ELMAX®, when compared to other stainless steels, excelled in performance distinguishing itself from the competition. Other steels might do well in one aspect, but fall short in other fields--performing poorly in the broad spectrum because of trade-offs. For example, a steel might be tough but difficult to sharpen; sharp but prone to corrosion and rust; rust-resistant but a softer blade. ELMAX® makes no sacrifices in its phenomenal build. Clearly, Elmax® steel is simply the best there is, and it’s been proven. It is ready to handle the most extreme of conditions from underwater scenarios to high temperature environments.
The FirstEdge™ Fixed Blade Tri-Composite Knife Sheath (patent pending) is constructed of precision-formed KYDEX® panels, with two hardened stainless steel liners in between. This design allows for disassembly, cleaning, and reassembly in minutes. The panels are fastened with hard-coated stainless steel Hex fasteners. Compartments and drain holes ensure moisture absorbance and sand grit retention is minimal. Knives snap securely into the KYDEX Sheath and are removed with positive thumb pressure, ensuring safe carry and rapid and safe deployment. Two sizes of three inch USA Made poly-pro nylon webbing allow for high or low carry. The sheaths withstand extreme conditions without cracking.
