I’ll say that whatever Imerial specifically Shrade/Uncle Henry used pre 1985 and in particular the folders was amazing by today’s generally available . They were carbon steel but I’m not much help past that . There is a knife thtead and there is a GI contract kitchen knife , it is hard to get sharp if it gets too far gone but sharp and kept up it stays sharp well .
I have a 30s vintage Soligen Germany 8″ butcher cleaver that will remove deer and pork ribs 3-4 at a blow and slice tomatoes . It holds edges very well even when used to break bones . I suspect maybe a nickle chrome moly steel .
