Cowry-Y(Daido) - Cheaper and less alloyed version of the Daido Cowry-X. Still, it is a high performance alloy, easily capable of 62-64HRC hardness and used in high performance cutters starting from small folders and ending with high end kitchen knives. Works best with polished, acute edge. Despite high chromium content, {AN} isn't really stain resistant, there's a lot of carbon in it tying up Chromium in carbides, leaving less free Chromium to resist elements.
