440C

While it was still a high-end steel several decades ago, 440 is a very decent middle-grade steel today. Many users still see it as the perfect "magical trifecta" of edge retention, corrosion resistance and easy sharpening. It is still the first choice for Boker Plus and for many models from our Solingen manufacture.
