New article about a lost and forgotten knife steel – Questek Ferrium M60S. The steel got some buzz around 2004 as a steel designed for knives using computer modeling. It was also sent to several knifemakers for testing and feedback. However, the steel was never commercialized, so I investigated what happened with this steel. I also provide an approximate composition (the exact composition was never provided) and information on the metallurgy behind the steel, along with what the properties would have been. https://knifesteelnerds.com/2020/11/09/lost-knife-steels-questek-ferrium-m60s/
