Blackjack Knives Info
'No Gimmicks...Just Performance'
You can see all the new Blackjack knives right here. The Blackjack brand is back. All are top-quality blades, knives crafted to last, designed to cut. We make superior cutting instruments, not wannabe gadgets or built-to-a-price ordinary dull knives. Our knives are more than razor-sharp out of the box, hand-finished with full convex edges, which give you the sharpest, longest lasting edge geometry there is, simple to maintain and to restore. And we tell you just how to do it. If you want genuinely modern high-tech belt knives, they are here. If you want sturdy unobtrusive good-looking working companion knives, we got 'em. If you like the American Classic styles, we make them. Small, medium, large, really big --- we got 'em. We put our knives in the best-designed production sheaths on the market. And we offer nearly a dozen specialty sheaths as optional purchases. Carrying a Blackjack knife is comfortable and safe --- and a lot of the sheaths are quick, too. No gimmicks --- just performance. And they are all Blackjack Sharp.
Featuring Blackjack Classic Blades, Tac-Ops Knives and Blackjack International Knives.
Blackjack Knives feature Convex Ground Blades.
There is nothing New about Convex Grinds or Convex Edges.
All Knives-Swords-Axes and Cutting Tools have been Convex Ground and Sharpened from the Bronze Age to about 1900. The Advent of Automated Grinding during the Industrial Revolution saw the first V-Bevel methods of Sharpening knives. This was necessary because there are no machines--even today--that can do a proper Convex Grind or Convex Edge.
Convex Grinds and Edges are all Hand Done.
The Advantage of the Convex Edge is that it supports the Carbides on the Cutting Edge by an almost 400% advantage to the -now common- V Bevel.
Convex Edges hold thier level of sharpness far longer than a V bevel and are 4 times tougher. They are also deceptivly sharp.
The Thick Edge Spine holds the carbides on the edge to such a longer degree that the knife stays sharper far longer and will still cut long after a conventional V bevel has gone stone dull.
Convex Edges are also the Easiest to Maintain and restore.
A quick strop and they are right back to Razor Sharpness.
All of the Classic Series of Blackjack Knives are Hand Convex and Hand Sharpened in the Traditional Manner to give you the Ultimate in cutting performance without compromising strength and toughness.
