ZDP-189 Disclaimer


In some light you may see a ripple effect on the outside (420J steel) layer of the 420J/ZDP-189. This is completely common and normal, and does not effect the integrity of the steel. This is from the process that pressure forges these two alloys together.


Uneven San Mai Lamination

While we try our best to make the laminated line as centered as possible, there are too many factors that make this almost impossible. This is very common, and a non-issue in terms of function. Look at this as beauty in the randomness of the material. Each lamination from the grind will be unique and perfect in it’s own way.
