Entrek USA is a knife line brought to you by internationally known knife maker Ray W. Ennis. The purpose of this line is to bring the high quality of the custom knife to the public at a factory made price. In order to bring this about a combination of the latest technologies and old fashioned skilled hand work is used. Ray Ennis has been professionally designing and making knives since February of 1973 and has made over 7000. Entrek USA knives can be found world wide.At Entrek USA we don't care what the glamour steel of the month is and we don't believe all the hype. Yes some steels are tougher than others, some are more corrosion resistant, others rust so fast you can actually watch it happen, but any steel with enough carbon in it to harden with a proper heat treat will make a useable knife. All Entrek USA knives are made from 440C Stainless Steel. The blades are heat treated, sub-zero stabilized and double drawn to 57-58 RC. This gives a combination of toughness, edge holding and corrosion resistance that is hard to match even with much more expensive steels.Entrek USA uses black canvas micarta from only one source in order to maintain color uniformity. Yes it costs more to do that way but, its a quality thing. Black Canvas micarta not only looks good but it also provides a very good gripping surface as well as being impervious to heat, cold, oil, water and other things that would destroy most handle materials.The sheaths continue to evolve and are made from black Kydex. Depending on the knife the sheath may have a belt loop or a belt clip, and black eyelets so you can lash the sheath to your gear if that is your desire.
