The high performance CPM® CRU-WEAR® steel is an air-hardened powdered metallurgy tool steel. Crucible's original smelted-produced CRU-WEAR® was created as an upgrade to A2 and D2 tool steels, both have earned longevity and respect in the cutlery business for their wear resistance and tough cutting performance.
The powder produced CPM® CRU-WEAR® blade steel offers even greater wear resistance and toughness than A2, D2 and M2. Through powdered steel technology, the steel is made easier to machine with improved resistance to chipping over the original smelted CRU-WEAR®. The powdered variety also attains a higher hardness factor through greater percentages of tungsten and molybdenum that result in a secondary hardening response.
Another unique feature of the Manix 2 Sprint if it's gray diamond pattern G10 handle scales. G-10 is extremely durable and the fine checkered texturing provides an excellent grip while the handsome diamond pattern clearly sets this knife apart from standard production versions of the Manix2 which enhances it's status as both a functional tool and a highly prized collector's item.
The Cru-Wear Manix is a limited edition sprint run and it is only available while supplies last!
