The Elvia is a collaboration between Turner CNC, Inc. and Ed Calderon of Ed's Manifesto. The Elvia is Ed's signature blade design and it is directly inspired by a knife his mother used to carry every day.
Our version of the Elvia features a 3D machined CPM 3V blade. The Elvia blade transitions from a hollow grind at the heel for increased cutting performance, to a flat grind at the tip for strength. CPM 3V is a Crucible powdered metal steel that has high toughness while still having good edge retention. Our blades are all professionally vaccum heat treated and then liquid nitrogen treated for maximum toughness.
The handle scales are CNC textured G10 or Ultem and are affixed to the skeletonized full tang with our custom 17-4 stainless hardened hardware. Our in-house made hardware is removable using a penny allowing for storage under the scales and field maintenance without special tools.
The Ultem Scale option has the Sneakreaper Santa Muerte holding the Elvia engraved inside and can be seen when the scales are on the blade.
The handle scales have a recess in the back to allow for a small cord to go through the blade to act as a lanyard.
The included sheath is an ambidextrous Kydex deep carry design. The sheath comes with a Tracker Dan Gen 2 clip, and the clip is removable for different clips or carry methods.
Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) finish on the blades is a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. The high surface hardness (HRC 72) provides excellent scratch resistance and is highly stain and rust resistant. It is matte black in appearance and holds up well to hard use.
