    Hello out there. Never been on a forum before, so bear with me. I contacted Spyderco by email and by phone. The company statement is that they don't give out information on the blade hardness of their knives. This is a surprise to me. Maxamet steel specs give a hardness range from 64rc to 71rc. I have a Dragonfly in ZDP-189. It checks out at 64rc, and is does very well. If anyone has any information on the Maxamet rockwell on Spyderco knives it would be appreciated. Thanks

    Heard of an older maxamet pm 2 tested at 69, newer pm2 at 68+ ish. And a manix a 69 and 68 ish. Anything newer is likely around 68. But hey I’m just a dude that read some things, haven’t tested mine. Anyway hope this helps.

    Maxamet is intriguing stuff, would like to hear more from actual users. There have been some comparisons with other steels regarding edge retention, corrosion resistance, but nothing definitive so far. Spyderco is the only company I am aware of that is using Maxamet.
