All western models of MAC knives have blades made of rust resistant high-carbon Chrome Molybdenum Vanadium alloy, with Tungsten added for selected models to increase hardness even further. Extreme care is taken to keep down the temperature of the metal during the grinding and sharpening process, thereby optimizing the hardness of the finished blade.
