This is A2 steel...it is very hard and very resistant to impact, but not too difficult to sharpen. I really like the sharpeners made by StaySharpGuide. They keep the perfect bevel. I have 20% FOC with a 125 gr head and this was a 150, so it would be a bit greater than that.
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
