The Quest

 

 

Since the mythical story of Vulcan, the Roman god of fire who forged swords for the other gods, man has been on a quest for the ultimate blade.

 

 

Now, through the use of the 21st Century patented technology of Friction Forging®, DiamondBlade’s high performance knives have gone beyond myth to achieve a level of blade performance never before available at any price

 

 

 

 

 

The Solution: FRICTION FORGED® TECHNOLOGY

 

 

Friction Forging® is a direct offshoot of the advanced friction stir process technology developed to help further the space shuttle program and to join exotic, high strength materials, not easily processed using  conventional means. Friction Forging® is a localized forging process concentrated in the blade’s edge zone, using high pressure and frictional heat. Friction Forging® produces “nanosized” steel grain microstructures and, consequently, the finest cutting edge known to man.

 

 

 

 

 

The DiamondBlade mission

 

 

Our mission is to combine American craftsmanship with state of the art engineering and research to build technologically advanced knives with the sharpest, longest lasting cutting edge of any knife.
