    I have available a 26C3 blade in a clean simple design. It has my first hamon but I didn’t polish and take it to a high grit as it doesn’t have a ton of activity, so the price reflects this lack of hand finishing. High hardness and a thin edge means this would make a great fine cutting utility or paring knife.

    Blade: 4” etched 0.08” 26C3
    Handle: Blue richlite with complimentary copper pins
    Measurements: 3.2oz and 8.5” OAL.

    Price is $100USD by PayPal at [email protected]. Includes lifetime warranty and sharpening for just cost of shipping. Please let me know if you’d like a sheath or if it will reside in the kitchen in which case it’ll ship with just an edge cover. Thanks for looking!

    Nice one, I've also read 26C3 has high potential hardness. What kind or RC were you looking for/tested?

    While I haven’t sold enough knives to buy a RC tester yet based on what temps I’ve found my HT oven to be at and heat treat data from Knife Engineering this should be around 64RC.
