    What is the blade steel on a 1440? It is marked Kershaw KAI 1400 Japan. Thanks for any help.

    8Cr13. The Half Ton is the updated version of the Chubby. Neat little knife.

    The Chubby done for Snap On was a OEM deal. They were made in the USA. However they are not being made anymore. The replacement (probably a better word to use rather than updated) is indeed 8Cr13.

    Here's the link to Kershaw's site with the info:

    But isn't the 1440 the Chubby?
    The OP was asking about the 1440, not the 1445.

    I too have a Snap-On/Kershaw 1440 and am interested in what steel the blade is. Couldn't find any info when I checked into it a little while ago.
