The Carbon, chromium, Vanadium, Niobium and Cobalt confirm that.
What it does look like is SG2/S35VN but we have a lot of Niobium in there. Looks like a good sharpening steel and like they are chasing a steel that takes a better edge than the S30v stuff we are used to. Looks like it can run hard. Hopefully they decide to max it out and run towards 62rc.
Not available for me to play with heat treatment but with all that Niobium and Cobalt I'd have a lot of fun pushing towards 65rc for slicers
Well that was fast! Thanks for the detailed preliminary breakdown of the steel Larrin.Larrin wrote: ↑Wed Jan 15, 2020 2:16 pmI gave my analysis of the new steel here: https://knifesteelnerds.com/2020/01/15/ ... -analysis/
