Dan, I just saw the 3V order list as well, I did not see that before I posted. I might want to split my order across the 2 steels. I have the 2009 & 2010 models in 3V & CPM154. What will the differences be in this run? Other than the steel, will this knife be exactly the same, grind, handle shape etc. as the 3V?

A little on Sandvik 12c27
The well-rounded knife
Sandvik 12C27 is Sandviks most well-rounded knife steel with excellent edge performance allowing razor sharpness, high hardness, exceptional toughness and good corrosion resistance.

Sandvik 12C27 is our main knife steel for hand-held knives, high-end ice skate blades and ice drills. Continuos improvement over a period of 45 years has evolved Sandvik 12C27 into the high performing steel grade it is today. The composition is tighter, the purity level is much higher and the fine carbide microstructure of today is far from how Sandvik 12C27 of the sixties looked.

With a hardness range of 54-61 HRC, high toughness, scary sharpness and good corrosion resistance, Sandvik 12C27 is the recommended grade for hunting knives, pocket knives, camping knives, high-end chefs knives and tactical knives.

Like most of Sandviks knife steels this grade is fineblankable enabling efficient production.
Chemical composition, % (nominal)
Carbon (C)...........0.60
Chromium (Cr)....13.5
Molybdenum (Mo) .0.0
Silicon (Si) ...........0.40
Manganese (Mn)....0.40
