    :D

    Can you tell a little about the UHB20c and 15n20 steels in your latest knife? I'm not familiar with the UHB20c, still learning the various steels. I haven't come across the UHB20c yet, and not seeing much info on it in regards to kitchen knives. I assume the 15n20 is used for the damascus pattern?

    UHB20c is basically a clean version of 1095.

    Of course, both are made here in Sweden by Voestalpine Strip steel Munkfors! UHB20c are very similar to 1095 but cleaner, a lot of Swedish/Scandinavian knifemakers and bladesmiths use it due to good avaliability. It’s good for both damascus and honyakis, only downside is that the stock is only 3,5mm thick (they don’t do it thicker) so honyakis with kurouchi-finish is almost a no go-zone.
    It’s capable of achieving Hardness up to 67-68hrc out of the quench so around 63hrc is a good common aim after temper.

    It has not been used so much in kitchen knives outside of Scandinavia but one renowned knifemaker here in Sweden that don’t need a closer presentation is Robin Dalman, he has used it alot in his Mizu-honyakis aswell as oilquenched knives.

    15n20 is used for the nickelcontent to be the shiny steel in damascussteel, the recipe is pretty much the same worldwide!
    15n20 actually makes a pretty decent steel for honyakis aswell.

    Thanks for the info! So tempting.

    Is the damascus reactive?
