Originally called CPM 440V, CPM S60V is a unique tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. It is designed from a 440C stainless base analysis with added high carbon and vanadium for exceptionally good wear resistance. The exceptional wear resistance and good corrosion resistance of CPM S60V make it an excellent candidate to replace 440C and other corrosion and wear resistant materials, particularly where increased wear resistance is a primary concern. One of the first CPM steels used for cutlery, but it proved to have performance issues, principally edge chipping, at 60HRC and was subsequently discontinued, modified and relaunched by Crucible as CPM S30V.
