Victory Knives have been Made in New Zealand by E.Goddard Ltd, for over 80 years. Victory Knives have gained a reputation for superior quality, and are used extensively in New Zealand and Australia by leading abattoirs and fish processing plants. The Victory Stainless Steel blade has a sub zero (-78C) quench after hardening. This particular process produces a strong, hard and wear resistant blade with improved edge retention. It also produces a finer grain and this is believed to be the reason that Victory Knives are less prone to corrosion and maintaining its edge.
