The blade of this professional tool is made of high quality D2 stainless steel, meaning it is extremely durable and will last for many years. D2 steel is an air hardening, high-carbon, high-chromium tool steel. It has high wear and abrasion resistant properties and will offer a hardness in the range 55-62 HRC. D2 steel will show little or no distortion once hardened and will be ready for expert honing by our craftsmen, its high chromium content giving it corrosion resisting properties in the hardened condition. The handle is designed to ensure ease in every use, and boasts an exquisite look by using beautiful ebony, and opulent brass ferrules to add class on this already fantastic equipment. The FLINT series of leather tools from Craft Sha are well known for their high quality and are some of the best edgers available in the market today.
