440C Stainless

This is commonly known as "old faithful". It was the first stainless that could compete with the tool steels. There are better steels available for more money - but this will produce a serviceable blade at a reasonable cost. Note: This is the bottom end of stainless that we sell - but not the bottom end of stainless. All of our other stainless offering are more corrosion resistant, better edge retention and tougher.
