KNIFE FACTS
Lifetime Warranty
Each Skyblade knife is protected by a lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.  
This warranty does not cover damage caused by misuse, abuse, tampering, or 
attempted repair by
an unauthorized person.  Should a problem occur which is
covered by this warranty, please send the complete knife to the address at the top 
of this screen. 


The Steel  
Skyblade Knives are handcrafted from the best stainless steels available, made right
here in America by Crucible.  Knives are available in CPM 154, CPM S30V, and the
latest stainless CPM S35VN.  All three steels have exceptional strength, corrosion 
resistance and edge-holding.  S30V is approximately 400% tougher, 200% more 
corrosion resistant and 25% better at edge-holding than conventional stainless 
steels.   The new S35VN offers about a 20% improvement over S30V, in strength 
and edge-holding. More info on these steels is listed below.

PM 154 is CPM-manufactured version of Crucible’s standard 154 CM. 
The CPM manufacturing process produces a uniform distribution of the 
carbides in this grade,
giving this CPM 154 easier grinding and polishing, plus 
better toughness, than conventional 154 CM, while retaining similar heat treat 
response and wear properties. CPM 154 offers better corrosion resistance, 
better wear resistance and better hot-hardness than 440C, plus higher toughness. 
For knifemakers, it offers better edge retention and chipping resistance than 440C.


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.

CPM S35VN is a martensitic stainless steel designed to offer improved 
toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than 
CPM S30V. Its chemistry has been rebalanced so that it forms some niobium 
carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium 
carbides for some of the vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20%
tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s

improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.  Because both 
vanadium and niobium carbides are harder and more
effective than chromium 
carbides in providing wear resistance, the CPM stainless blade steels offer
improved edge retention over conventional high chromium steels such as 440C 
and D2.  

The CPM process produces very homogeneous, high quality steel characterized 
by superior dimensional stability, grindability,
and toughness compared to steels 
produced by conventional melting practices.

The Handles
A variety of hardwoods are available as handle material.  In stock are Madison Maple 
(very limited), Giant Redwood, Lacewood, Ironwood, Cocobolo, Curly Koa, Afzelia, Ebony, 
Black Walnut, Osage, and Vermillion. Others available upon request.  A laminated and 
colored hardwood known as Dymondwood, is 
available in a number of color combinations.
Many colors of the man-made composites, Micarta and G10, are also available and have 
out-standing durability.  Antler, horn and bone are also available.  Looking for something 
unique?  I have a limited supply of Mammoth Tusk Ivory.

Email or call and we can discuss the differences in the handle choices and choose one
to fit your needs or taste.  

The Sheaths
Each Skyblade knife is accompanied by a beautiful, custom, leather sheath handcrafted 
by Madison Saddlery in Ennis, Montana.     WWW.MADISONSADDLERY.COM

Serial Numbers and Engraving                                                      
Each Skyblade knife is engraved with its' own exclusive serial number specific to each knife 
model.  A name or date may be engraved on the blade at an additional charge of $5-10, 
depending on complexity and setup.  This is a great way to personalize the knife.

My Last Word
So, whether it's for cutting, slicing, sawing, or just showing off to friends - for home or
in the field, Skyblade Knives delivers reliability, unequaled beauty, and an instrument built 
for a lifetime of use - I guarantee it!  And offer free lifetime sharpening on any Skyblade knife!
