The Carbinox T508 blade combines the best features of carbon and chromium steel, such as durability, toughness, and easy sharpening. Steel alloy (Cr 8.7%; 0.50%) is tempered to hardness HRC 58.
The material is not classified as stainless but has better resistance to corrosion than conventional carbon steel. Careful cleaning and drying of the blade after use is sufficient for basic care of the Carbinox blade. We recommend oiling the blade with salt-free oil from time to time.
