Sandvik 13C26 knife steel
Razor edge sharpness
Sandvik 13C26 knife steel is developed for razor blade applications which means a strong focus on hardness, sharpness and edge stability.
Sandvik 13C26 is the Sandvik knife steel grade with the highest achievable hardness while still maintaining the fine carbide structure which is characteristic for Sandvik's knife steels.
With exceptional edge performance and good toughness this grade is an excellent choice for demanding cutting applications where the moderate corrosion resistance of Sandvik 13C26 knife steel is not a key issue, or if the blade is coated for corrosion protection.
With a recommended hardness range of 55-62 HRC, exceptional edge performace with scary sharpness and good toughness, Sandvik 13C26 knife steel is recommended for surgical blades, razor applications, whittling or as a surface coated EDC (Every Day Carry) knife.
Like most of Sandvik's knife steels this grade is fineblankable enabling efficient production.
