Sabre - weapon and symbol of office
Creating replicas of historic cold weapons is the part of manufacturing that we are truly proud of. There is some technical challenge on virtually every knife that makes it not so easy to make. However, there are many times more of these challenges on any faithful copy of a historical weapon, which includes the saber.
Sabres came to Europe from the East, where they were used in the early Middle Ages. This is shown by their single-edged, slightly curved blade. It is the curved blade that can be advantageous over straight weapons because, if handled correctly, it can be used effectively not only for chopping and cutting, but also for thrusting back.
Hablock - a knife for everyone
The Hablock knife, whose name originated a long time ago by combining parts of two English words (HAnd and BackLOCK, which is the type of blade lock used), is a pocket folding knife that is classified as a hunting knife. However, it appeals to a much wider range of customers and many of them consider it to be the best-looking knife we've ever produced.
UTON 0008 STONEWASH
In March, due to the great success of the UTON N690 steel and the demand for another variant, we launched a modified version of the UTON 0008. The knife is also made from N690 steel with a hardness of 57-59 HRc, has a wedge cut, is stamped 0008 on the sight side, but also features a STONEWASH finish, which is a matte look created by whitewashing the blade during production.
