The maker says...
This is a shorter version of the survival knife, but with a slightly larger guard. With a total length of 19 cm, a handle of 11 mm.It is intended as an alternative to a large folding knife in cases where you don’t want to compromise on the strength. On the standard model the steel is A8-mod. Thickness is approximately 5 mm, and handle is black textured G-10, giving a very secure grip. Pictured here with kydex sheath with nylon webbing.
A8-mod is a modified version of AISI A8. It’s a conventional cold work tool steel, with a medium carbon content and alloyed with chromium, molybdenum and vanadium. It exceeds most knife steels in toughness. Toughness is a property often overlooked in knife steels, often on behalf of corrosion and wear resistance. The thing is that a sharp edge with a decent edge angle (<35° total angle) needs toughness to avoid breakage of the edge/chipping, especially when working with hard materials like wood. Because of this, edge retention of this steel will be better than higher alloyed steels and even powder steels for many purposes.
A8-mod has, even on a hardness of over 60 HRC, ductility and will bend before fracture. (This doesn’t mean that it is soft.)
All knives can be broken, knives in A8-mod will just give you a much harder time doing so
