A bit about the steel used in SURVIVE! Knives:
CPM MagnaCut is an innovative new stainless steel from Crucible. It has an excellent combination of toughness and wear resistance, along with improved corrosion resistance. Our CPM MagnaCut blades are expertly heat treated to 62.5 HRC. Here is the CPM MagnaCut Data Sheet.
CPM-3V is a high alloyed tool steel, made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, that has a very high impact toughness and excellent edge holding. Being made with the CPM process, this steel is also very resistant to lateral stress (flex) breakage, making it a perfect choice for a high performance, hard use knife. CPM-3V is not a stainless alloy and can stain if not cared for. Check out the CPM-3V Data Sheet.
