H1 steel is a PH steel, meaning it is a precipitation-hardened steel.
It reaches a Rockwell hardness of 57-58rc and is rolled hard without heat-treating and has .1% nitrogen which acts like carbon in the steel matrix, but does not react to chlorine making rust.
Surprisingly, it holds a sharpened cutting edge comparable to the premium knife steels being used in the industry by most knife manufacturers.
