Collection: D2 Knives

D2 steel is a high-carbon tool steel with excellent wear resistance and toughness. It is produced by several manufacturers around the world, including Bohler-Uddeholm and Crucible Industries. D2 steel contains a high percentage of chromium, which contributes to its corrosion resistance and ability to hold an edge. D2 steel is often used in industrial applications, including blanking dies, stamping dies, and cutting tools. It is also a popular choice for knife blades due to its edge retention and durability. However, D2 steel can be difficult to sharpen, and some people find it to be too hard for everyday use. It is important to note that D2 steel is not stainless and will require proper maintenance to prevent corrosion.
