14C28N(Sandvik) - Sandvik stainless steel, specifically developed as a knife blade steel. Initially, it was an exclusive for Kershaw/Kai cutlery, not anymore, Italian knife company Nilte uses it in their folders. Composition was first published in 01/2011, but it was correct, listing wrong N content, 0.55% Mo, which is gone from official Sandvik website. Addition of the nitrogen should improve corrosion resistance and hardness. Sandvik's recommended working hardness 55-62HRC. Very fine grained alloy, which is a good news for any type of the knife. I wouldn't call 62HRC very high, there are a lot of alloys capable of 64-68HRC, old and new. Still, very decent alloy, offering good combination of corrosion resistance, edge stability, wear resistance and strength.
