Maxamet(Carpenter) - Carpenter Technologies high sped tool steel. Uses their trademark Micro-Melt® technology. From production knives manufacturers, Kershaw did try to make a folder out of it, ZT888, but it proved too difficult to grind at 60+ HRC, and it had warping issues if heat treated after grinding. Still, there's hope for Maxamet - custom makers. High on Cobalt and Vanadium. 10% Tungsten(W) may seem a lot, but in reality it isn't because Tungsten is so heavy, in other words, too much fewer atoms to form carbides. High wear resistance, high working hardness and lots of carbides. Will perform better with coarse edge if you get your hands on a knife made out of it.
