HERE is an über-informative link to a datasheet pdf.
I read on another steel site that it can well replace D2, with reduced chipping risk.
Does anyone know what steel Uddeholm Sleipner is similar to? It is supposed to be a tool steel and has the following alloys:
I'm no expert on this so any info that is known or can be speculated from the alloy content would be greatly appreciated! I assume that with the chromium at only 7.8 that it will rust fairly easily. It would be great if someone could tell me what other steel this should behave like (stain resistance, toughness, etc). The knife is supposed to shoot for a rockwell hardness of 60-61 if that makes a difference. Thanks!
I have seen that and also seen the reference to being similar to D2. I also don't see anything about it being a particle metal so I guess I was wrong about that.
Anyone else have any experience or thoughts on this steel?
