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.

Rockwell Hardness: HRC 51-53

The Stainless Steel Tomahawk - Atlas Chipping Hammers Cone and Chisel Coil Handle 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.
