3/16″ x 1-1/2″ x 36″ CPM S35VN Stainless Steel
CPM-S35VN was introduced as an incremental (minor) update of CPM-S30V. The addition of Niobium and finer grain structure than S30V increases toughness and ease of sharpening. Edge-holding and stainless properties are roughly the same (roughly same carbon, chromium, moly, and vanadium levels). The differences between CPM-S35VN versus CPM-S30V are arguably minimal when compared to the variances in properties found within each respective steel. S35VN is much easier to achieve a miror finish than S30V.
