ZDP189 is made by the Hitachi Metals Company. It contains large quantities of carbon and chromium that result in very high levels of hardness. ZDP189 hardness ratings average around 64 HRC but some blacksmiths can take the steel to over 66 HRC. However, with hardness levels reaching this high, sharpening ZDP189 is not easy.

Because this steel is extremely hard and can take a very keen edge, care must be taken in carefully choosing your stones and monitoring your technique. The amazing damascus finish on the blade is a true work of art and it gives these knives a look like no others. It is a stainless multi-layer construct, so maintenance will be reduced.

This is a big knife! But not an unwieldy one. In fact, the very fine blade and thin profile go together to create a knife that is very nimble and easy to use. Of course, you will need a big cutting surface to get the best out of this size knife. Given that, it is a blade fit for almost all uses. Whether you are chopping or slicing, using a long knife is a wonderful experience. The knife has a versatile profile with a sizable sweet spot for chopping, a gentle belly for rock cutting, and a thin pointed tip for detail work.

We are making some of these formidable blades available with selected custom handles made by our favorite woodworkers. We will update the pictures and specifications to match the latest available combination.
