    I'm sure there are a lot of people that know. I'm surprised no one here knows.

    Ditto.......I find it hard to believe a foundry can make a profit by making a batch of steel for just one knife maker.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't the only ones to use it. But if you don't tell anyone what you are using, tough to know if someone else is using the same thing. Especially with different heat treats, cladding, etc.

    Iwasaki (and whoever is working for/with him), Shigefusa (et al) and Heiji (et al) all use the same steel, most likely with the same HT. How many people is that? Sounds like a crowd to me. It's probalby a combiniation of a well kept secret and that there probably just aren't a whole lot of people that care.

    I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Devin sprinkled some magic powder in the stack while welding it up.

    The steel came in today. The chemical cert says that it has 1.27% C, .007 P, .001 S with a few other standard elements and a very small amount of grain refining alloy.

    It is some of the cleanest steel I've ever seen.

    I'll laminate some this week I hope. (sanmai with 403 stainless on the out side)

    You should probably try that with something basic, like a square, cleaverish in shape, but not as tall and thin it out bit, just to see how it does. The pm me for who may be able to purchase your experimentation.
