Knife fans, listen up! The latest new tool for demanding divers is here.
This knife is made of ultra-hard titanium. The knife opens easily with one hand. It offers hardness, abrasion resistance, and corrosion resistance, and is lightweight and safe.
This Mares beta titanium knife has superior cutting sharpness in its custom-ground blade with special serrations, allowing you to cut through a variety of special materials.
For diving purposes, its advanced properties that protect it against corrosion in chlorine- and water-based solutions are crucial! Titanium is an anti-magnetic metal and is often used in its pure form, as well as in alloys or thermally treated.
Thats why titanium isnt always the same! Below 882°C, the metal state of titanium has an alpha structure (Alpha-titanium), while above this temperature it becomes a beta structure (Beta-titanium), used for diving knives. Beta-titanium can only be manufactured using new hot-treatment techniques, so-called hardening, in order to achieve advanced resistance qualities.
Whats more, the beta alloy (compare to pure titanium and alpha-titanium) has extreme resistance to corrosion. Both of these properties make beta-titanium the material par excellence of the new Mares Bat Force Titanium diving knife. A handy, lightweight jack knife thats always ready in an emergency.
Beta-titanium, combined with sharpened serrations along the blade, guarantee incredibly advanced cutting quality, even after continuous extended use in salt water. When closed it can be hooked easily to a BC or kept in a pocket and secured with the carabiner provided.
