    AN-58 Steel?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I have a buddy who has an M. Nieto knife and the blade steel is supposedly
    AN-58.

    What commonly known steel is close in performance to this? Thanks.

    According to Gator97's steel chart, the composition of AN-58 is
    _C_____Cr_____Mo___V
    0.45___13.50__0.01__0.02

    That would make it similar to 420HC
