CPM 20CV is a steel created by Crucible to be excellent at resisting wear and corrosion. It#39;s balanced with good toughness as 20CV combines vanadium for edge retention with a high percentage of chromium. It#39;s comparable to Bohler#39;s M390 stainless steel or Carpenter#39;s CTS-204P. These super steels share their composition and are regarded as the best knife steels available, however due to the raw material cost they are often only seen in smaller pocket knives
This premium quot;super steelquot; is made up of 1.9% carbon, 20% chromium, 4% vanadium, 1% molybdenum and 0.6% tungsten.
Toughness. The combination of carbides in CPM 20CV makes the blade tough, but not as resistant to breakage or chipping as other premium steels. Although this steel is tough, this blade is not designed to chop at bones.
Edge Retention. Critical to the kitchen, CPM 20CV is one of the best steels for retaining an edge. The CATRA test, which compared 20CV to 440C, rates CPM 20CV 180% better than 440C in sharpness and edge life of a blade. The higher percentage of vanadium in this steel creates a fine grain structure to better hold an edge. Adding molybdenum increases the strength needed to hold the edge over time, and the added tungsten also helps keep the edge.
Your knife will have its final edge applied using a CBN wheel at low speeds. It should only need to be honed on a rod or touched up on a high grit stone.
Stainless/Corrosion Resistance. The high percentage of chromium with a bit of molybdenum makes 20CV one of the best high-end, corrosion-resistent steels used in knife blades today. Higher chromium amounts allows some of the metal to form a protective, passive film of chromium oxide that repels rust and prevents staining.
**Gemstone composite Info** The Gemstone handles are made of 80% real stone dust mixed with acrylic resins to form a corian like material which is very hard and waterproof that simulates the natural stone.
**Resin and Stabilized burl** Stabilized Burl is combined with our resin to create these one of a kind knives, no two batches of resin are exactly the same!
** Resin cast Stabilized Pine cone handles** These stabilized pine cone handles are cast under pressure to force the resin into all the nooks and crannies of the pine cone which is then shaped and polished by hand.
** Stabilized Wood** Our highest end old growth burls are selected and then stabilized. The process of wood stabilization forces liquid resins into the wood under high pressure. The resins completely impregnate the wood, and then cure, so the wood now resists shrinking and swelling with the weather as well as taking on water.

Coinciding with the adult use legalization of cannabis across North America, an opioid epidemic has emerged. It is estimated that more than 130 people die each day due to opioid overdose in the United States alone, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The organization reported that, in 2017, nearly 50,000 Americans […]
Camphene, sometimes called comphene, is one of more than 200 terpenes discovered to date in hemp and cannabis. Terpenes are aromatic molecules once thought to convey only aroma and, from an evolutionary functional perspective, to protect a plant from pests and predators. In recent years, however, much clinical research, in addition to anecdotal evidence, has […]

As a Veteran who relies on medical cannabis to lead a healthy life I can honestly say that this is the best app out there for tracking medical marijuana use and how it affects you. Its ease of use and the option to convert your results to a PDF format to give to your Doctor sets it above all others. I was totally new to the use of medical cannabis, and the Strainprint app has been my guide since the start. It’s a absolute must for anyone serious about getting healthy with medical marijuana.

I use the Strainprint app to help treat symptoms related to Crohn’s Disease. For me, tracking is life-saving. Because of the app, when I am in the middle of a horrible flare, I now have strains on hand that I know will work fast and keep me out of the hospital, operating room, or worse. There is no more guesswork thanks to the Strainprint app. This app has been a lifesaver.

I suffer from Endometriosis, and some strains help my pain, while others amplify it. With so many strains out there I was having trouble remembering which were which. With my oils, the app has helped me to figure out the best dose to bring down my inflammation, so that I am not wasting oil by taking more than needed. I can easily go back and look at how each dose affected me. This app is a game changer, Thank you!
