Des Horn Custom Knife The Ultimate Every Day Carry Knife. This is in my opinion the best every day carry knife I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Des Horn has used the experimental steel "Nitrobe 77" for the blade. This steel is extraordinary, it holds an edge 3 times longer than RWL-34 and has a Rockwell hardness of 62. It also has the ability to bend to extreme limits without breaking.

The blade steel has almost no carbon in it at all making it a completely stainless steel. Nitrobe 77 must be heat treated 3 times and cryogenically quenched in liquid nitrogen 4 times in order for the steel to be heat treated properly. This process is quite costly but the performance is second to none.

The scales are carved carbon fiber making the knife extremely light. The knife weighs 1 1/8 ounce and seems to disappear in your pocket. Nitrobe 77 steel is quite rare and very difficult to acquire. Do not miss out on the opportunity to own one of these knives, you will not be let down!
