CityHunter with a high hardness of 62-63 HRC is just a dream - the knife keeps sharp perfectly and for a long time. Usually at such a high hardness, the blades become brittle. Not with PGK steel! Unparalleled, this German steel can withstand very high loads even at such a high hardness. Due to the high content of alloying elements (carbon, tungsten, vanadium, molybdenum, silicon), this steel is distinguished by its aggressive cut and the highest wear resistance, that is, it perfectly keeps the edge sharpness. At the same time, the blades are very strong and resistant to chipping even at high hardness of about 62-63 HRC.
If you want to combine excellent cut, retention of sharpening and the highest strength - you can safely choose a blade from PGK. Steel with such high wear resistance is quite difficult to sharpen, however, with diamond stones or water stones, there will be no problems.
The 8.5% chromium in the composition gives PGK a certain resistance to corrosion, but it is not called stainless. Surface stains may appear, while corrosion does not go deep and is easily removed. Lohmann PGK steel is suitable for those who love high-quality cutting. If you are a fan of razor-sharp blades, she will definitely delight you.
The name of the CityHunter knife can be translated as "city hunter". This model was released in the fall of 2016 and became a continuation of the series of small city knives. The Urban series is distinguished by a lightweight compact sheath, in this case made of polyamide, with multi-position suspension, and a very comfortable small handle, which many have already appreciated on the Urban knife. Here it is made of G10 with sealing spacers.
However, the similarities end there. The CityHunter blade looks even more brutal. It is almost a centimeter longer than its predecessor (105 mm), and the straight descents and thick tip hint at readiness for stress and power work.
The knife looks quite graceful from the side, but as soon as you take it in your hand, you feel a strong and reliable tool.
