    Niagara Specialty Metals is proud to introduce a new CPM grade from Crucible Industries. CPM S45VN is the latest evolution in a line of steels designed specifically for the cutlery industry. We were asked to produce a grade with more corrosion resistance without sacrificing the wear resistance and toughness of S30V or S35-VN. Preliminary reports indicate we accomplished that goal with the added benefit that it takes a nice edge and is easy to machine.

    The S45VN chemistry was proposed by Niagara Specialty Metal’s Western Sales Manager and Knife Steel Specialist, Frank Cox. Final refinement of the chemistry and mill production methods were developed by Bob Skibitski of Crucible Industries. The chemistry is nominally 1.48% C, 16% Cr, 3% V, 2% Mo, .5% Nb and .15% N.

    There is stock available at Niagara Specialty Metals in most of the common sizes. Pricing will be posted at nsm-ny.com next week or you can call 1-800-424-0048 for pricing now. Distributors will stock it if the demand for it is there.

    Thanks for your support,
