KSX38(Deutsche Edelstahlwerke) - Water hardening, alloy tool steel. Quite high on Carbon, 1.5% is no joke. Also has 3% Vanadium, which is one of the best carbide formers along with refining steel grain. Takes quite fine edge, has decent edge holding and wear resistance. Never seen in production knives, but used in customs here and there.

Manufacturing Technology - Ingot

Country - Germany(DE)

NOTE - Approximate composition based on manufacturer's or standard reference information and other alloys in the same reference group is shown.
