What is MC66 Steel?MC66 steel is a high-end Japanese stainless steel manufactured by Hitachi following the latest Powder Metallurgy technology. MC66 steel name is Zwilling J.A. Henckel’s steel naming of ZDP189 Stainless steel.   MC66 steel contains very high Carbon (3 %) and chromium (20%) in its composition, which gives it excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, wear resistance, and edge retention. MC66 steel is common in most Henckels Santoku and other kitchen knives. It is worth noting…

What is Niolox Steel?Niolox steel is stainless steel with tool properties like D2 steel and Sleipner steel, it is produced by Lohmann. It features a unique composition that contains Niobium which gives it excellent wear-resistant properties. Also, this high-quality steel is very fine-grained, which helps with resharpening and edge retention. The properties of Niolox make it good steel in the manufacture of industrial knives, camping knives, and sports knives. Niolox Steel Composition Carbon C 0.80%: Increases…

What is Bohler M398 Steel?Bohler M398 steel is a high Chromium martensitic steel produced following the Powder Metallurgy process by Bohler. It is an improvement of M390 steel and was introduced in the market in 2019. M398 steel contains more carbon and vanadium making it very hard steel. Bohler M398 steel has about 0.8% more carbon elements in its alloy and about 3.2% more Vanadium elements. The addition of these two increases the macro hardness…

What is Elmax Steel?Elmax steel is high chromium vanadium and molybdenum stainless steel produced by Bohler-Uddeholm through a powder metallurgy process. The PM production process enables fine and uniform distribution of carbides, improving Elmax performance over conventional steels. The outstanding features of Elmax steel are that it is stainless steel with about 18% chromium content, it provides excellent corrosion resistance, high compressive strength, and wear resistance, which most knife steels do not achieve. Elmax stainless…

M390 steel is super steel produced by Bohler-Uddeholm following the third-generation powder metallurgy. Knives made from this steel maintain their sharpness for the longest time and are highly priced. Bohler uddeholm M390 contains high amounts of chromium and vanadium as its main components giving it extreme corrosion resistance and excellent wear resistance. What’s more, the finish of M390 stainless steel is appealing to the eyes which is associated with its superfine grain structure. Following its…
