- Highly stainless steel used in Spanish Muela knives. Multiple sources publish the same composition which looks rather iffy, but considering the absence of the reliable info I had to go with that. Iffy because numbers like 16.04% Chromium in the composition are unrealistic in real life, nobody controls Cr content with that precision, it'd be too expensive. There is another composition floating around, which lists MV-58 as AISI 440A steel
class alloy with added Molybdenum, while all other sources list the composition shown here, which is closer to Din X50CrMoV steel
. All in all, budget stainless steel with mediocre performance at best. Highly stainless, will be better off in diving knives, but there's a ton of all sorts of survival, jungle etc knives made out of it. Working to get more precise and reliable info on its origins and composition. If you have any info, please let me know.
