Friction Forging®: A Game-Changer

  • Friction Forged® Technology: The Summit Folder 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.

 

Handle Material

  • 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.

 

Lifetime Warranty

  • Free Lifetime Sharpening: We stand behind our knives! Even a DiamondBlade Knife will eventually need to be sharpened. Simply send your knife to our Texas headquarters, and we’ll professionally resharpen it for free. Learn More
  • Corrosion Resurfacing and Refurbishment: If a complete refurbishment service is needed, our technicians will refurbish your knife to keep it looking and performing like new.
  • If you experience an issue with your knife, simply contact us, and ship to our Texas Headquarters and we will completely repair, or replace your knife. Learn More

 

Care

  • Maintain the Edge: A few strokes on a ceramic rod on either side will keep your DiamondBlade razor-sharp.
  • 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.

 

Sheath

  • Secure and Convenient: Choose between a nylon or Kydex-lined leather sheath.

  1. L. PACHE

    My Folding Summit arrived last week. I couldn’t be more satisfied: Fit, finish, design are all perfect. If you would have made this 50 years ago I’d probably have saved over five thousand dollars on knives touted to be the best and never were. This is last and best folder I’ll ever need. My last and best fixed blade order is going to you guys on Monday. Thank You All!
