I have been under the impression since GEC's start up that they were using straight 440C steel for their stainless blades. Lately I have been seeing a lot of print listing 440HC, a steel which I am not familiar with. (Not to be confused with 420HC).
Can anyone clarify which of the two is actually the one GEC is using?
If it is indeed 440HC, can any of my fellow "steel junkies" explain the difference?
I'd ask GEC directly but I haven't had the best of luck recieving replies from them lately.
In 2006 Chris told me they were using 440C. Just wondering if this has changed?
There are a lot of new steel selections out there these days, but I've never heard of 440HC.
