This steel is hardened to 58 HRC. Carbon Steel. - Unlike stainless steel, Carbon doesn't contain any Chromium. This means It can hold & keep a very sharp edge. This steel is hardened to 62 HRC. Over time, this knife will form a 'Patina' on the surface of the blade. This isn't harmful to the knife, it helps protect it from more sinister oxidation/rust.
