It’s Time To Give People What They Want.
Growing Up In The Eighties We Always Had Nickels Made Out of Nickel - 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 Nickel Handles?
