Hey all, I’ve owned a bunch of ESEEs. All of them were 1095 advertised to be in the 55-57 HRC range. I like the idea of the S35VN at a higher Rockwell, especially for the smaller models (I am really drawn to the Xancudo). However, I have never given the 440C much thought until now. I’m considering trying out a 4 in 440C, which led me to do an internet search and I came up empty. Does anyone know the Rockwell at which ESEE runs 440C? Anyone have any insight how it performs? Edge retention and ease of sharpening difference when compared to the standard 1095? For as much ESEE content that the internet has, I honestly haven’t heard much about the 440C. I know that, at one time, the warranty for the stainless knives was different than for the 1095 blades, but that seems to be in the past. That’s the only real comparison info I can find in the archives, though. Thanks for any input you have.
