Bubba Blade Steel
Bubba Blade looked into what kind of metal is used on the most expensive knives and discovered that not all stainless steel is created equally. There are many factors involved in steel-making, and you need high-end steel to keep a sharp edge on a knife.
After months of research, they went with 8CR13MOV. They feel that it is the best steel on the planet for what fishermen and hunters want. This is a high carbon stainless steel with a Rockwell rating for hardness of 56-58, which is typically found in much more expensive knives. Simply put, this steel is the best they could find that would hold a razor sharp edge longer and take an edge when resharpening it. All Bubba Blades are sharpened by hand at the factory to razor sharpness. For good measure they coated the blade with a non stick surface that is bonded with Titanium that will help prevent rusting & pitting and let the meat slide off the blade effortlessly.
Bubba Blade Knife Handle
This is what all the fishermen were jumping up and down about when Bubba Blade first released their prototype.
They started with a full tang blade construction for better balance and weight distribution, added a thermoplastic polymer handle and wrapped that with a special synthetic rubber made out of the strongest compounds on the market today. The handle is big enough so that you have outstanding grip security, and it feels great in your hand. The handle has multiple thumb and finger positions so you can apply pressure when you need to cut through the tough part of a fish. This wrapped handle is engineered for outstanding grip security and safety. It is also resistant to heat, weathering, and chemicals. The non-slip thumb pads, finger pads, and guards help prevent your hand from slipping onto the blade or into the spines of the fish you are cleaning.
