Default Knife blade testing.

Just another twist on testing a blade to see how the edge holds up. This one is from some new steel I decided to try after reading about how tough it is. It came from Alpha knife supply. It's called 26C3. Has about 1.25% carbon and some chromium. Don't know the hardness but it's harder than woodpecker lips and will still shave hair after cutting up a paint can.
I might have to make me a set of steak knives out of this stuff one of these days.
