Blade Type Information: 420 Stainless Steel

420 is the numerical designation for a grade of stainless steel. The 400 series includes ferritic and martensitic chromium alloys, with 420 specifically referring to Cutlery Grade martensitic, which is similar to Brearley's original rustless steel and possesses excellent polishability.

Type 420 Stainless Steel, a modification of 410, has a higher carbon content to increase hardness, improve strength and give better wear resistance. Type 420 Stainless Steel provides both corrosion resistance as well, and is commonly used in dental and surgical instruments, cutlery, plastic molds, pump shafts, steel balls, and numerous hand tools.

Type 420 resists corrosion by the atmosphere, fresh water, steam, carbonic acid, crude oil, gasoline, perspiration, alcohol, ammonia, mercury , sterilizing solutions, soaps and other similar corrosives.

Handle Material Information: Sure Grip Rubberized Handle

You might actually be surprised to know what tools come with this type of handle. First though before we get into that letís talk a bit about what this is for those who may not know.

What it is

Basically a tool that has a sure grip rubberized handle more than likely has a handle with only the top layer being covered in sure grip rubber. This type of rubber not only gives you a firm grip (think rubber tires on wet roads sort of grip) but it also reduces the amount of shock that you receive when using the tool in question.

Tool Types

From what was just described as well as your familiarity with tools, what sort of tools do you think would have this sort of handle? Hammers are what might first come to mind. There are other tools with this sort of handle too and one that might even surprise you, but we will save that one for now.

Axes are a type of tool that is available with a sure grip rubberized handle. It is important that there is some type of handle that you can get a good grip on with this tool in particular because of the danger involved if it flies out of your sweaty hands. That is also absorbs some of the shock from impact is just a plus.

Now, surprisingly there are tomahawks with this type of handle. Tomahawks are more associated with wooden handles but it is possible to find some like this. While they are typically used for throwing a good grip means that you will not lose your grip on it in the process and scalp yourself!

Rockwell Hardness: HRC 51-53

The Smith & Wesson CH629 Bullseye Combo Pack with 1-CH200/1-Ch100 has a Rockwell Hardness of HRC 51-53

Stanley P. Rockwell inevnted the Rockwell Hardness Test in 1919 while working as a metallurgist in ball bearing plant. Rockwell wanted to measure the uniformity and hardness of inner and outer rings on which the ball bearings rolled. He designed a device that could measure hardness accurately and quickly.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standardized a set of scales for testing Rockwell hardness values. Each scale has been designated a letter and corresponds to a different group of materials. Scale C is used for steel, titanium, deep case hardened steel, hard cast irons and other materials harder than scale B 100.

Knife blades and other steel hardened tools are made from metals that match to the Rockwell C scale. Most blade makers display the hardness number as "HRC xx" or "HRC xx - xx" providing a range, where "xx" indicates a Rockwell hardness number. Not many blades measure over HRC 70. Most functional blades rate somewhere between HRC 56 and HRC 63.

Generally, blades with a lower HRC number don't hold and edge for long under demanding use, but they are easier to sharpen. Blades with a higher HRC value stay sharp for longer, but are more difficult to sharpen. As an example, stainless steel has a HRC higher than carbon steel, but it is also more difficult to sharpen than carbon steel.

Company Information: Smith and Wesson

Smith and Wesson is well known for its reputation as a leading innovator in firearms. Founded in 1852, the company had created the world's first repeating pistol with the invention of lever action and able to use their design of a fully self-contained cartridge. They then invented the rim-fire cartridge, bringing about another world first; a revolver that could fire this self-contained cartridge. To maintain their position of firearms superiority, they continued to lead the way in innovative technology in the firearms industry.

Smith and Wesson also designed the Model 3 American; the world's first large caliber revolver. These were subsequently sold to the United States Cavalry and to Russian government in the 1870s. Later, the company created hammerless revolvers which can still be found in their line today. Many military and police personnel have carried the Smith and Wesson .38, also known as the Model 10. They went on to introduce the .357 Magnum, the Model 39, the .44 and the Model 60.

In addition to firearms, Smith and Wesson created a line of tactical weapons, including tomahawks, knives, and axes. These are designed with the same precision and quality that they have put into their firearms.

The line of knives they created was designed by John Wilson, Roy G. Jinks, and Blackie Collins. Smith and Wesson has developed over 250 tactical knives, throwing knives, tomahawks, and hatchets, with the manufacturing done by Taylor Cutlery. These tactical tools are designed for a range of users, including hunting and outdoor enthusiasts, police agencies, and fire departments. Smith and Wesson knives, tomahawks and other bladed tools have one of the best warranties in the industry; warranted for the life of the buyer against defects.
