At EKA more than a century of crafting tradition is combined with modern production technology. Each knife is subjected to the most rigorous quality control and comes with a 10-year guarantee. EKA’s knives are renowned throughout the world for elegance, functional design and first-class materials. To work with an EKA knife, the feeling of the grip, the strength and the excellent sharpness, is something above the ordinary.
Most knives have blades made from stainless Sandvik 12C27 steel. Some models are available with blades of black finished carbon steel. Sandvik 12C27 is a Swedish steel developed by the Sandvik Corporation specifically for knives and surgical instruments. It is easy to sharpen and holds and edge well.
The knife blades are hardened to 57 - 59 RC to achieve a durable edge that retains its sharpness.
Most EKA folding knives have the blade secured with a screw that can be adjusted to trim the motion of the blade and to be dismantled for cleaning.
EKA is an appointed supplier to H.M. the King of Sweden.
