STEELPORT cutlery and accessories are made in the USA. The blades are drop forged from American 52100 carbon steel, heat treated to achieve 65 Rockwell hardness for unparalleled edge retention. Each finished blade is hand-smoothed on all surfaces, including the bolster and spine, and the edge is hand-sharpened. Full tang construction offers balance and strength while cutting. The handles are made from locally sourced Oregon Big Leaf Maple Burl stabilized with resin to prevent swelling or shrinking. Each handle is precision machined to achieve feel and contour for excellent control without fatigue, and each steel end cap features an engraved STEELPORT logo.
