A premium ingot high-carbon steel. In our experience it’s the best knife steel being produced in China today. The name is derived from its component elements: .9% carbon, 18% chromium and 1% molybdenum. With controlled heat treat and tempering it reaches a HRc of 58-62. Before its entry into the knife industry it was widely used for high-end Chinese barbering scissors, roller bearings and surgical tools due to its corrosion resistance and high processing quality.
