Product Details, Specifications, and Technical Information


- The composition of 26C3 is similar to Hitachi White steel.
- The steel is very clean with few alloying elements.
- The high carbon content helps the steel get very hard.


The first knife we made tested just under HRC 68. This alloy is an excellent choice for knifemakers who want to make knives with a hamon.
