There's a good discussion here.
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
I want one!!!!
Any news on a larger fixed blade in the range of a 9-inch blade?
"We are studying....what?
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!!
