    Better toughness. Less wear. than k390
    High toughness also at high HRc. Excellent for big blades.

    BÖHLER K490 MICROCLEAN cold work tool steel closes the gap in the material demands between wear resistance and the desired high toughness.
    • High hardness (up to 64 HRC)
    • Very good toughness
    • High abrasive and adhesive wear resistance
    • Excellent hard machinability
    • High compressive strength
    • Heat treatment together with common cold work tool steels (1.2379, D2) at hardening temperatures from 1030 to 1080 °C (1885 – 1980 °F) possible
    • Stable mechanical properties

    Any news on a larger fixed blade in the range of a 9-inch blade?

    Am I the only thinking it's time for a properly sized, stainless, fixed blade?

    I would prefer a 6...6.5 inch "full blade" (without any notch).
    A 9 inch may be too heavy to carry.....and hopefully not made of the bloody Sleipner!
    It's time for a top class stainless!!
