Blade material: 17CR17MOWV is a martensitic stainless steel produced by adding a small amount of molybdenum (Mo) and vanadium (V) to 7Cr17 to improve hardness and wear resistance. It is basically a modified 440A stainless with more Vanadium which increases overall strength, wear resistance, and toughness. It holds an edge exceptionally well.
