KaTi Series

The meaning of KaTi has its’ origins from the Japanese word “katai” meaning “hard” The hardness of the material used in the blades of our KaTi Series knives has a Rockwell Hardness (HRC) of between 50 and 52.  In comparison, pure titanium has an HRC of less than 1 (meaning it doesn’t even make the scale).  Grade 5 titanium, also commonly referred to as Ti-6Al-4V, has an HRC of approximately 41.   The superior hardness of our KaTi Series knives make them a great choice when lightweight and durability are preferred.  At approximately 45% lighter than steel, it is now possible to carry a blade that maintains a sharp durable edge yet is not going to weigh you down!
