    I'm wondering what the comparitions is 12c27 vs cpm3.Most of my knives are 154cm I really like this steel it has worked well for me.I'm looking to buy a Barkriver necker2 and wondering which steel is better.

    12C27 is a stainless, CPM 3V is a tool steel. 12c27 will corrode less, 3V will be MUCH tougher and somewhat more abrasion resistant.
