Friction Forging®: A Game-Changer

  • Friction Forged® Technology: The Pinnacle I proudly features the groundbreaking Friction Forged® Technology Steel, elevating its cutting prowess to unparalleled levels of sharpness and durability.. The Friction Forging® process results in steel grain structures 10x finer than traditional knife manufacturing methods, thereby creating a harder, thinner, tougher razor sharp edge. The DiamondBlade knives will outperform any other knife by 10 times – or better – guaranteed. Read More
  • Holds a shaving edge 10X longer: This revolutionary forging process creates a finer grain structure, leading to a blade that stays 10 times sharper, guaranteed.
  • Non-Brittle: The finer grain structure also makes the blade more resistant to chipping and breaking even at an unprecedented 65-69 Rc hardness.
  • Corrosion-Resistant: The forged zone is resistant to corrosion and rust, ensuring your knife stays reliable for years to come.
  • Easy to Sharpen: Because the blade is ground to a 9 degree (18 degree included) angle, there is less material to remove when sharpening is eventually needed.

 

Unmatched Quality

  • American-Made Toughness: Every DiamondBlade Knife is made in the USA with American materials, backed by a lifetime warranty.
  • CATRA-Tested Sharpness: Each blade undergoes rigorous testing on a CATRA (Cutlery Allied Trade Research Association) knife sharpness machine to ensure it meets the highest sharpness standards.
  • D2 Tool Steel: This high-quality steel forms the foundation for the patented friction forging process, resulting in an ultra-hard edge (65-69 Rc) with an 18-degree (included) sharpening angle.
  • Full Tang Construction: Built for strength and reliability, fixed blade DiamondBlade knives feature a full tang construction, providing the necessary backbone for consistent performance in the field.

 

Handle Materials

Exquisite Materials; Choose from multiple handle materials adorned with mosaic pins, ensuring a stunning and unique aesthetic.

  • G-10: Tough as nails material that is a combination of fiberglass fabric and epoxy resin. A synthetic handle that is made to be durable while providing a good non-slip grip that is easy to clean.
  • Wood: If you are looking to elevate the look of a DiamondBlade knife, our stabilized wood handles are an excellent choice as they are complimented with mosaic pins that create a classic, very high-end look. They are made with heirloom quality materials and craftsmanship that are a joy to use in the field.
  • Stag: The beautiful genuine elk antler handle is a showpiece that sets you apart as a discriminating outdoorsman. Like the wood handles, it is stabilized and finished in a high gloss, sporting beautiful mosaic pins. Please note that international shipping is not permitted.

Care

  • Cleaning: Wash with soap and water after use, then follow up with WD-40 or another solvent to clean the blade’s micro grain structure. Wipe dry to prevent rust. This product is not dishwasher safe.

  1. BRIAN

    I recently shot a giant 181 inch buck in Alberta that weighed well over 320 lbs. He was a old buck with thick hide. I used the Pinnacle to skin out this deer so I could take his cape and horns back home to put on the wall. Knife kept its edge and has a great feel in your hand. I have used buck knives for ever but have made the switch to Diamond Blade and not looked back. Brian S. – Chronicles TV
