"CPM S30V is a martensitic (hardened) powder-made (sintered) wear and corrosion resistant stainless steel developed by Dick Barber of Crucible Industries in collaboration with knifemaker Chris Reeve. 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. . . . Its composition is as follows: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molebdenum 2.00%"
I have bought about 6 of these knives and they are great. they retain a sharp edge better than most other steel and I have problems with only one. the handle design makes it easy to hold onto and its size and weight makes it easy to carry. I have purchased knifes more than twice the cost that weren't as good as this one. I carry one daily. I have given 5 as gifts to friends and family. the last one of this model I have carried for over a year and the handle on the opposite side of the pivot pin broke so the handles try to separate.
Great little knife, fits in pocket very well and no blade waggle. I highly recommend
Purchased one of these these a few weeks ago. Already had one with AUS8 I really liked, figured I would grab one with S30V. One request I have would be to add more color options for these mini AK models, so I can pick up a few more :}
