Henckels Twin Cermax

Not sure of the exact steel but it is powdered steel RC 65-66 under $220 for the 9 1/2 inch. Good Balance on this particular knife but the smaller ones are blade heavy. The handle is micarta and it is backed by a lifetime warranty. This knife has become my #2 behind my Hiromoto in the kitchen and at school.

According to cutleryandmore it is MC66 steel core - a high carbon steel covered with a high-corrosion resistant steel.

I know nothing about MC66 but I am sure others here do.

the MC stands for Micro Carbide and the claim from the manufacture is that it's a proprietary powdered steel. I don't know about it being carbon.

From our friend over at zknives.coms

ZDP-189
- Latest super duper PM steel. extremely high carbon and chromium content. C - 3% and Cr - 20%. Very high hardness, several makers harden it to 65 or even 67HRC. As you can guess very expensive too. Cowry-X and MC-66 are very similar, in that those two have the same C and CR content. Although, Henckel representative in Tokyo did confirm MC66 being ZDP-189. Ref - ZDP-189 Steel Composition.

Wow! I was so wrapped up in learning I completely forgot to look at the last post date. This is what happens when I spend too many hours studying steel comparisons before finally pulling the trigger on my next blade. I feel shame...



I'm down to a Hiromoto AS, Miyabi Artisan in SG2 or a clearance Miyabi 7000MC in zdp-189

Miyabi in ZDP would be nice. I can't sneeze at the AS's though....always a favorite.
