It’s Time To Give People What They Want.
Growing Up In The Eighties We Always Had Pennies Made Out of Copper - Man Times Have Changed.
Valhalla Cutlery went Back To The Real Deal and Spared Nothing & the Result was PURE QUALITY.
It starts with Blades & Handles being water jetted by Great Lakes Water Jet in Granger, Indiana.
Then Getting Custom Knife Maker Alan Harvey to Come to Colorado to meet me at Valhalla Cutlery.

Why Did I use S30V?
It is American Made Steel for One Thing.
CPM S30V is a martensitic powder made stainless steel which was developed by Dick Barber of Crucible Materials Corporation in collaboration with knifemaker Chris Reeve as a knifemaking steel due to its wear and corrosion resistance.
Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides.
In addition, vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain which further contributes to the sharpness and toughness of its edge.
Its composition is as follows: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molybdenum 2.00%.
Knifemakers prefer using CPM S30V because its composition makes it easy to consistently heat treat as well as easier to grind although the carbides wear down the grinder belts.
According to Custom Knifemakers, knife users prefer S30V because it provides a strong blade with a maintainable edge due to the Vanadium carbides.
Why did I use Copper Handles?
Keep Your Pennies In Your Pocket.
The Romans found Copper on the Island of Cyprus and Called it Cyprium.
Copper metal and alloys have been used for thousands of years.
In the Roman era, copper was principally mined on Cyprus, hence the origin of the name of the metal as Cyprium, "metal of Cyprus", later shortened to Cuprum

"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world."
"Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm."
"Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties."
"Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition."
"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
