not tempered, the 440c comes pre tempered. or atleast it is harder than my 8 High carbon drill bits that were broken trying to drill a hole for the handle pins. so approx hardness should be greater than 58 HRC

My first knife to my fresh knife collection is Image
Guns are faster than swords and the best survival knife.
