Product application field

In outdoor exploration, survival, and wilderness activities, knives are indispensable tools. Whether hiking, camping, fishing, or hunting, knives play crucial roles in various situations. Here are the diverse application areas of outdoor knives:

  1. Survival Tool: In wilderness survival, knives are essential tools in survival kits. They can be used to build temporary shelters, create tools and weapons, process food, and more. A sturdy, multi-functional survival knife is crucial for handling unforeseen circumstances and overcoming challenges in the wild.

2. Camping Tool: During camping, knives serve as versatile tools for cutting wood, processing food, preparing fuel, and more. For example, cutting firewood to the appropriate size or peeling food may be necessary, making a sharp knife invaluable during camping expeditions.

3. Outdoor Cooking: Knives are indispensable utensils for outdoor cooking, used for slicing, chopping, and preparing ingredients, enhancing the joy of outdoor dining. A lightweight, portable outdoor cooking knife facilitates chefs in handling ingredients with ease, allowing them to enjoy delicious outdoor meals.

4. Emergency Rescue: In emergencies, knives can be used for self-rescue or aiding others. For instance, they can be used to cut ropes, trim bandages, clean wounds, and more. In outdoor adventures, faced with sudden accidents, a reliable knife can be the last line of defense for saving lives.

5. Tool Maintenance: During outdoor activities, knives can also be used for maintaining other tools. For example, sharpening knives with a sharpening stone to maintain their sharpness, or using them to repair damages to other equipment. Thus, a durable knife can serve as a versatile tool in outdoor activities.

Why choose martensitic stainless steel for outdoor knives?

 

1. Strong Corrosion Resistance: The outdoor environment often exposes the tool to wet, rainy and other conditions, so corrosion resistance is one of the factors that must be considered for outdoor tools. Martensitic stainless steel also has enough alloying elements such as chromium, so that it has good corrosion resistance, can resist corrosion factors such as water, moisture, chemicals, and maintain the surface finish and function of the tool.

2. Excellent Hardness And Wear Resistance: Outdoor tools need to have sufficient hardness and wear resistance to cope with the complex use environment in the field. Martensitic stainless steel usually has a high hardness, so the tool products can maintain the sharpness for a longer time, not easy to dull, wear resistance is relatively strong, can maintain the service life of the tool.

3. Easy Cleaning And Maintenance: Outdoor tools are often exposed to a variety of dirt and impurities, so easy cleaning and maintenance is a very important feature. Martensitic stainless steel surface is smooth, not easy to adhere to dirt, easy to clean and maintain, but also not easy to produce rust or oxidation, to maintain the hygiene and beauty of the tool.

4. Strong Tensile Resistance: Outdoor tools may be subject to greater force and impact, so it is necessary to have good tensile resistance to prevent the deformation or fracture of the tool. The structure of martensitic stainless steel makes it have good tensile resistance, not easy to deformation or fracture, and can maintain the stability and safety of the tool.

5. Excellent Mechanical Properties: Martensitic stainless steel tools have good cutting performance, stable blade strength and elasticity, making the tool more reliable and effective in actual use.

Photo1(domestic), the carbide individual is obviously large, the processing will appear the phenomenon of detachment.

Photo2(abroad),The carbides are superior to domestic ones, but there are more angular carbide, and cracks and stress concentrations are easy to occur in use, leading to early failure.
