154CM Stainless Blade Steel
This is a 440C "mod" that is the equivalent of ATS34 - but cleaner. Compared to 440C, it is more stain resistant, tougher and has better attainable hardness and edge retention. This steel is the knife maker's "stock in trade". 154CM is a small jump in price and a HUGE jump in performance over 440C!
