    A very very nice knife indeed. Love everything about it. The profile, the two toned handle, the satin finish... excellent. Well done!

    Thanks very much all Yes the steel is around the 1080-1085 mark. En42 has about 0.7%-0.8% carbon, en42J has a tad more 0.8%-0.9%. To make it even more confusing it can also be known as cs70 or cs80 here.
