Foil wrapped carbon steel gamma sterilized -- Blades are packed 100 in a box, and cases contain 10 boxes. The difference between the composition of carbon steel and stainless steel is that carbon steel is an alloy of about 99.5% iron, 5% carbon - so almost pure iron, but stainless steel is about 2 parts iron for 1 part chromium. Carbon steel is generally harder and stronger but less corrosion-resistant. $133.00 for a case of 10 boxes of 100 available by clicking here. If this link doesn't work, it means we don't have sufficient stock to list the cases of 1000.
