MMHW has been known since it's inception for producing knives and axes with very sharp edges. With the changes we have recently made MMHW has gone one step further beyond 'pedestrian' professional sharpening. Please use with care. Current blades are without a doubt the keenest ever produced by us. Guaranteed.
MMHW is a second generation shop. We offer over 40 years of combined experience producing extreme usage cutlery and full bore field ready tools you can count on. We will make you a custom knife; but, we do not add 'bells and whistles' that only drive the price of the knife or axe up. Function is our byword. If it does not function there is no fun; and, chances are if it isnt fun then it probably doesnt function.

A steel popular with forgers, it is extremely popular now and a very high-end steel. It is essentially simple spring steel with chromium added for hardenability. It has good edge holding, but is known especially for its outstanding toughness. Often used for swords (hardened in the low 50s Rc) because of its toughness, and is also used for hard use knives (hardened up near the 60s Rc).
