Definition
High-carbon steels (AISI 1055-1095, 1137-1151, and 1561-1572) are extremely strong yet more brittle. They offer better responses to heat treatment and longer service life than medium-carbon steels.

High-carbon steels typically have high wear resistance due to their superior surface hardness.
