Carbon Steel – 80CRV2
For blades and axes that need to have extreme toughness with outstanding edge retention, 80CRV2 is our choice. 80CRV2 is high-carbon tool steel that contains chromium as well as vanadium. These properties allow for the incredible hardness and resistance needed in a blade! While 80CRV2 can still rust if not properly maintained, since it contains chromium, it is more resistant to the elements than other high-carbon steels. Need an axe, throwing star, or extremely durable kitchen knife? 80CRV2 is your choice.
