You steel junkies out there know how cool Cru-Wear is. The new CPM Cruwear is an improvement on this hard use material (see below). This double hollow ground re-cruve blade is RAZOR sharp. The material can be heat treated to a high harness (HRC 61.5) and not become brittle . Notice that the top spine of blade does not have the usual grooves (or jimping) for an extra clean, custom look.

The handle configuration is a hard coat anodized aluminum scale. However, unlike previous Strider aluminum models, this is actually a scale standoff configuration rather than the integral back spacer normally seen. The standoffs are satin colored for a great contrast. Duane has added a grip insert that is machined pocket with a grip inlay. This is NOT just grip tape! They are actually filled with an cured epoxy with aluminum oxide. Provides a great grip and looks just badass! The titanium lock side has a been matte bronze anodized.

About CPM CRUWEAR: It all started years ago with VascoWear manufactured by Teledyne Vasco which was an incredibly tough alloy. Crucible Steel then later came out with their version called Cru-Wear (NOT CPM Cruwear) that was their version of the alloy (slightly different formula). Then, Crucible took their patented Crucible Particle Metallurgy and again changed the alloy to create the CPM 3V that we all know and love. The alloy was changed slightly for CPM 3V as at the time the CPM process was not suited to higher alloyed materials. After years of refinement and Crucible able to apply the CPM process to materials up to 36% alloyed, they then we able to add back in the Tungston, Manganese, and Silicon carbides of the original Cru-Wear and BOOM: CPM Cruwear was born. It is an incredibly tough, wear resistant steel. Will take an edge and hold it through abuse.
