    Who is making kitchen knives from 440c

    Who is making knives from 440c nowadays? I know Benchmade makes them. Any commercial or custom makers still using it routinely with proper hardening? I know there are better high performance small carbide steels out there and I have multiple knives made from them, but I want a good 440c knife.

    A lot of people are saying great things about Carpenter CTS-XHP, which is similar in a lot of ways to 440C (some describe it as 440C on steroids). I bet a few different makers might take you up on a 440C blade, though.
