AEB-L also goes by the name 13C27. It is a stainless steel (13% chromium by composition) that is known for a very fine and clean grain structure. This makes the steel naturally tough, which is ideal for fixed blades. This tough nature allows for a higher Rockwell than many other steels. The carbon content in AEB-L isn't super high like many modern super steels, but the high hardness brings in the edge retention needed to compete.
All blades are sent out to Peters Heat Treating to be professionally hardened to 62HRC (+ cryogenic treatment).
A cryogenic treatment is when steel is brought to temperatures below 310°F. This is done to further improve grain structure by removing residual stress and improving wear resistance. Every blade produced by Terra Knives has undergone a professionally done cryogenic treatment.
Knives are cutting tools, and they should never be used to pry or screw. If a blade breaks due to misuse, you can send it in for a regrind. I will do my best to bring the life back to the tool. Buyer is responsible for shipping cost.
