Superior #3(Braeburn) - First appeared during WW II, semi-stainless tool steel. Very popular even today. Pretty much every steel manufacturer makes it and it's quite popular with knifemakers, custom and factory alike. Composition-wise it's almost a stainless steel. Resists rust pretty well, good edge holding and ok toughness. Bob Dozier is perhaps the most acknowledged expert of D2 steel knives.
