1/8″ x 1-1/2″ x 36″ – CPM S30V Stainless Steel
CPM S30V is a martensitic (hardened) powder-made (sintered) wear and corrosion resistant stainless steel. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. These vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. Knifemakers use CPM S30V because its composition makes it easier to grind than other powder metal steels and for it’s toughness. it might be the ultimate high-end all-around stainless steel, due to high performance coupled with easier machinability and sharpenability than the other steels in this class.
