About CPM S110V: Crucible Steel S110V is made through their Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process for a fine grain structure. The high carbide volume of the steel makes this one of the most wear resistant stainless steels available. What this means for you: CPM S110V is going to be exceptionally good in edge retention on abrasive materials and highly corrosion resistance. The trade off is that is slightly more difficult to sharpen but still manageable with diamond or similar abrasives.
