Sternsteiger team got inspired by its designer with his early inspirations for a chef's knife. See above the very early sketch. This early sketch is the landmark to the current present day design of the Achilles knife. The designer Mr Usmann Butt knew from the first day that this design has to be named to a legend that is a devine & living name among us.

The Achilles Forge weighs about 2 Ton of solid steel, and the making of the forge took about 8 months with 3 recall alterations into it.

Since the knife has to be made up of a complete unibody steel forge, a special steel form was used, see in the pic above its form.

The next challenge was to get the unnecessary forge away from the blade and get the hole ready for sandings and grinding process.

After trimming process under the hydrolic press the Achilles gets trimmed out for the next step. i.e boring the hole into it with a Titanium gold coated special drill for its openings.
