About PG Knives
PG Knives attract and please the eye. They are distinguished by design and complex grinds on the blades, in which the knifemaker is particularly fond of and which he carefully refines. The combination of several elements, on which the knifemaker places special emphasis, i.e. very precise workmanship, modern materials and often futuristic shapes, give a specific value for the future user. What should be emphasized, PG Knives, regardless of the complexity of the construction of specified knives, are designed for intensive use. In the workshop, most of the work is done manually or with manually operated machines. The entire process related to steel processing, from cutting the initial shape, to hardening and grinding, is carried out by the knifemaker on his own. The same applies to the processing of materials on the handle (G10, micarta) and sheaths (kydex).
Defender is a full-tang knife (made of one carefully selected piece of material to which the handle covers are attached) made of the highest quality Elmax steel (chrome-vanadium-molybdenum powder steel). Elmax is one of the few steels available on the market in the absolute top quality of materials used in the production of premium knives. A properly prepared Elmax blade is extremely resistant to overload, stays sharp for a long time (it wears very slowly) and has excellent anti-corrosion properties.
Blade for every kind of tasks
The knife blade made in a combined style (fusion) will work well in all kinds of field and camp applications. Working in wood and preparing a meal are just a few of the many activities in the knife’s application package. The operation of the knife is facilitated by the use of a combined (double) cut. The flat-ground blade segment with a slightly curved cutting edge (recurve) is perfect for planing, the concave-ground segment for food preparation. The swedge at the very tip is useful for making punctures. Due to the fact that it has a sharp finish, it allows you to work efficiently with flint.
On the back of the blade there is a jimping, and directly behind it a recess that supports the thumb during cuts that require the use of greater force. The blade is quite wide and has been profiled in such a way to reduce the risk of your hand sliding over the cutting edge while working.
Ergonomic and grippy G10 handle
Linings of the handle with an ergonomic shape is made of G10 composite resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids, having high resistance to mechanical damage. The linings were screwed with screws consistent with the general design of the knife. The linings are profiled to ensure a secure grip, regardless of whether we work with or without a glove. At the end of the handle there is a hole for a paracord. Originally a section of paracord was woven into it, which improves the grip of the whole and makes it easier to remove the knife from the sheath.
Knife comes with a sheath made of hand-formed Kydex material, which is attached to the belt with a buckle made of the same material. The buckle can be mounted horizontally (along the belt) or vertically. Kydex itself is a very durable material that is characterized by high impact and scratch resistance, low moisture absorption, resistance to various weather conditions and many chemicals. Holsters made of it are used comfortably and for a long time. The holster is equipped with through pins to which you can attach, for example, a tinder holder (not included) or use them to attach it to a backpack, harness element or a molle solution.
