- DLC (Diamond Like Coating)
- American CPM 3-V Steel
- Extremely sharp
The classic San Mai III fixed blades have been a Cold Steel staple for decades. Coveted by Martial Artists and knife collectors alike, they are much in demand, but these high-end luxury fixed blades are only produced in exclusive limited edition runs each year.
Therefore, the Cold Steel Nightfall Series of Japanese styled blades is made from American CPM 3-V high performance powdered steel - with the same design and attention to detail as the much loved San Mai classics but with the addition of this premium American super steel. Each of these tough, reliable blades is DLC (diamond like) coated to a rich inky black finish. Highly scratch and wear resistant, and honed to an edge that you would expect on the keenest of razor blades, they are not only super sharp, but built to last!
