We consider this the absolute best blade steel available, and it is made in America. S30V contains carbon as well as high amounts of Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium. This steel combines fantastic edge retention and high ductility combined with corrosion resistance. Double-tempered - it can be hardened to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 59.5-61. However, it is difficult to resharpen yourself, but we do offer sharpening services for a nominal fee.

I've been a fan of the Paklite series for a while, and before that S30V steel. This kit is incredible functional and durable as either a field kit to process and cape, or in the kitchen for final meat processing. The boning knife is wonderful in the hand for main cuts, while the caper is perfect for the detail work, caping skulls, etc. With no handle material to trap meat, the knives themselves are easy to clean, and the plastic sheath is as well. All in a super-light, easy to carry package. Wonderful kit.
