Bravo-1 in CPM3V

Most of you are familiar by now with the Bravo-1 Hard Use Knife that we designed with the help of Force Recon of the U.S. marines. The Standard Bravo-1 is made in A-2 Tool steel.

This Run is made from Crucible Steel’s CPM 3V Powders Metal Super steel. CPM3V has more toughness than A-2 or any of the Stainless steels on the market. It has over twice the Edge holding of our A-2 but is not actually much more difficult to sharpen. For All intents and purposes, CPM3V seems to be the most Ideal Steel that can be used in a Hard use Non-Stainless Steel knife.

CPM3V is not prone to easy rusting or Staining because of it’s Vanadium Content so it does not have to be babied in use. Just a quick wipe down when you are finished and you will be good to go.

The “Field Knife” version has no Ramp but does have the Traction Grooves in the flat of the spine.
