About 52100 Tool Steel: A high carbon steel (0.98-1.10) used primarily for ball bearings. Ball bearing steels traditionally have to withstand a great deal of force in a very small area. They make good edge steels because an edge also has to withstand much force in a small area. A very fine molecular structure permits very sharp edges, even at thin angles. It's similar to 5160, less tough but holds an edge better.
