A8 is one of the steels on my list that I want to to try out. I have a huge excevator chisel that should be S7, but no way to break it down to a workable stock for stock removal. Both should be great steels for a thin machete or a large chopper knife like the one shown by Scaniaman.

I made a knife out of A8 Mod @ 61 hrc and did kind of a destruction thing on it in the end šŸ™ˆ
It was just impossible to chip or crack.. It just deformed in the end. It had a pretty slim convex geometry. I plan to use more of this steel.

Is this A8mod from AKS? How much rust resistance it is?
