    Hi all,

    I met a maker in New Zealand whos uses this steel extensively - I couldn't find much in Google... does anyone know anything about it?

    What is the closest comparison to an AISI grade?

    This is the only link I could find: http://www.acametal.com.tr/psl_cel_kim_an.htm

    I'm specifically interested in toughness / shock resistance for making fighters.

    Thanks,

    Daniel, it's German steel grade. They have 2 main standarts for steel: Werkst.Nr. and DIN.

    Werkst.Nr. 1.4110 (or DIN X55 CrMo14) is very popular on German kitchen cutlery (knives by Wusthof Dreizackwerk, Solingen, Germany - for example) . The close US equivalent is AISI 440A. For details have a look at
