All MMHW knives, swords, and axes are made "to order" for hard use with 5160 high carbon steel and are finished with a non-glare, rust-resistant parkerization. Bead blast finish is available upon request. Deep hollow grinds and great geometry make these knives excel at cutting or chopping.

5160 A steel popular with forgers, it is extremely popular now and a very high-end steel. It is essentially a simple spring steel with chromium added for hardenability. It has good edge holding, but is known especially for its outstanding toughness (like L-6). 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).
