New here. Just received a new PM-2 with the blade marked 52100 as the steel. Anyone know about this? I have never seen it before.

Welcome to the forum, what do you want to know, 52100 has been used on a number of models, first was the mule, then military, PM2, Manix2 etc. It's a great steel, easy to sharpen, gets super sharp and seems to hold a working edge for some time. It will patina if not cared for.

Are you unaware of 52100 as a steel, or do you doubt the steel is truly 52100? If the former, prepare to be impressed.
