    Hi BarnZ,
    I just purchased a DZ-5312-MW direct from your site. I was wondering if you could tell me what steel is used in the blade of this particular knife?
    I noticed that you use 440-A in many of your knives. Would this also be the same for this one as well?

    Your knife uses a high grade German Stainless steel with a hardness of 57-58 Rc. The nomenclature is on the blade "W.1.4116"

    We use the following steels in our line:

    440A (USA)
    440C (USA)
    AUS-8A (Japan)
    W1.4116 (Germany)
    12C27 (Sweden)
    Z60CDV14 (Sweden)
    T9MOV (France)
    Devin Thomas and Mike Norris damascus as well.
