May 16, 2008, Newsletter Issue #78: Grading Hunting Knife Quality

Tip of the Week

The Rockwell C scale measures the hardness of hunting knives. A low C grade means the blade is soft and will lose its edge quickly. A high C rating means the steel is too hard. The blade will snap under pressure, impact, and torque. A Rockwell C scale hardness in the upper 50s is best for most hunting knives.
