LAMPART Bulat refutes the popular opinion that the work knife must necessarily have a raw and aggressive look. Before us is an elegant knife that will remind the enthusiasts of design that the main purpose of the knife is cutting. Very nice and smooth cuts. Provides its owner with smooth and well-controlled handling.
When it comes to gutting hunted animals or planing a piece of wood, Leopard will cope well with this task.
The blade of the knife is rendered and later forged from Damascus steel, Bulat, which contains chromium, making the blade almost rust-free with minimal maintenance. In addition, the steel contains molybdenum and vanadium, which provides the blade with very good flexibility and elasticity. You can easily work with a knife in the cold and not be afraid of breaking the blade. Blade hardness 62-63 HRC.
The handle is made of durable nut, it is not sensitive to extreme temperatures, dry and wet weather.
Care. After work, wash and dry the knife. If it will be stored for a long time, it is best to rub the blade with olive. Take care of the knife and he will take care of you.
Bulat/Wootz – for around 2,300 years it should have been called real Damascus steel, characterized by excellent utility values (pulad in Persian and bulat in Russian). Also known as crystalline damast. Currently, incorrectly, commonly known as Damascus steel damasta forged or a freak. However, the difference between them is fundamental. The bulat is created by smelting and forging, and the freak “only” by forging various layers of steel.
Bulat, as we have already mentioned above, is produced by smelting and then forging. Thanks to this, iron carbides are formed in the structure. Carbides have a much higher hardness than carbon steel alone. The presence of carbide domains allows forging and sharpening the weapon that the blade is very hard and not chipped, while maintaining the flexibility of the entire blade. The addition of chromium, molybdenum and vanadium strengthens these properties and makes our knives highly resistant to weather conditions.
Legendary steel with legendary properties
In the 3-2 century BC, near India/Pakistan, local blacksmiths after many attempts discovered a new way of producing great quality high-carbon steel. By adding certain types of glass to the local iron ores a very high purity of the alloy was obtained. This technology along with the development of trade and movement of the population reached around the tenth century in the Middle East. Further experiments with local ores and various admixtures of glass allowed to achieve a phenomenal product for those times. Rare, desirable and very expensive. The steel structure has iron carbide domains that form a dendrical arrangement of layers and ribbons that are parallel to each other. This allows forging that the carbide strip is on the blade and the parallel layers and subsequent bands are becoming less dense as the distance from the cutting edge. Very high hardness, chipping resistance while maintaining flexibility. Iron carbides have a much higher hardness than carbon steel alone. Such properties are ideal for knives and cutting weapon, and by the way the Bulat pattern on the blade is beautiful with a characteristic discreet charm. Currently, due to the workload, complexity and knowledge, technology is being reproduced in few places around the world.
It’s steel for the best and most expensive knives.
It’s a real knife, resistant and resilient. BULAT is tempered to 63 HRC. It serves long and faithfully.
Working with knives made of this steel is a great pleasure.
