Knifesteelnerds is a good resource online. But for more technical, detailed metallurgy I have no clue. @Larrin would know as would the knife makers around here.

zknives.com is still a great resource.

Also I believe Larrin is working on publishing a book very soon.

If you read German: Messerklingen und Stahl, by Roman Landes.
