It has good corrosion resistance and is tough enough the edge won't chip out. 440C offers a good performing steel at a good price. Finally it can easily sharpened. Don't confuse 440C with lower quality 440A you find on low end knives. 440C is quality steel that has a good balance of edge holding, toughness and corrosion resistance that has stood the test of time.

- Excellent for Starters
I purchased this knife blank as the first I would add scales to. It came in hardened, polished, and sharpened. The pins for the bolsters were ground nicely- there were not obvious.
The only ding I gave it for quality was that I had to ream the pin holes to accept a 1/8" pin- one hole was a nice slip-fit but the other was a thou undersized. This isn't an issue- just make sure you ream those holes out when you get the blank and you will have zero problems!
The results were great- just make sure you shield off the bolster when running the knife on the grinder or you'll wind up having to re-polish it.
I used 1/8" black G10 and the results were great!
I would definitely recommend this blank!
