Spyderco Delica ZDP British Racing Green Plain Blade Folding Knife -
The knife industry is constantly pushing the envelope searching for, and testing, higher performance blade steels. ZDP189 is rapidly asserting itself as an up and coming steel. It's a powdered metal made by Hitachi that has phenomenal chemistry with 3% carbon. The hardness is around 64Rc and edge retention is exceptional. This solid ZDP-189 steel blade is the hottest, hardest and highest performing steel in the knife industry today.
Powdered steel with uniform and fine microstructure. The chemical Composition of ZDP-189 is Fe - 3%C - 20%Cr. It has excellent wear resistance due to high hardness (66 to 68 HRC), good toughness against chipping, and good corrosion resistance.
Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) -
A nylon polymer mixed with glass fiber that is then injected into a mold for making lightweight knife handles.
