D2 Carbon Steel
Considered by many to be the best carbon steel for knife blades. The combination of superior abrasion resistance and toughness in D-2 results from its high carbon and high chromium content.
Mill Finish: Will have scale on surface from hot rolling. Oversized .010" to .035"
Blanchard Ground: Better surface finish achieved by grinding mill scale from both sides. Oversized .005" to .015"
Precision Ground: Best available finish achieved by surface grinding both sides. Tolerance ±.001"
