Knife Steel Composition Chart

Knife Steel Composition Chart


Knife Steel Composition and names cross-reference database.

It is NOT a game, nor a steel history book, nor a knife maker catalog, nor an engineering manual.

If you have relevant information, please share with me and I'll publish it.

Includes popular, exotic and high end alloys used in knife blades.
Over 6300 alloy names, over 960 compositions. Alloy names for 21 different national standards, proprietary names and their equivalents. Easy composition comparison with bar graph in 3 modes: mass percentage, molar masses and atomic count per 1000 atoms.

Supports Bookmarking of the alloys, including bookmarks export/import, listings by multiple criteria including Standards, Technologies, Makers, Countries, Recently Viewed, Bookmarks, and custom search filters.

Explanation of the alloying elements effects on steel is included, accessible form both, steel detail and graph views.

App needs 2mb space on the device, regardless of install location!!!

Sorry, there will be no translations to any language. I am one person collecting steel data and coding the app on 3 platforms. I have neither time nor resources to keep constantly translating large database.

You can help by reporting missing alloys, and incorrect info. That's a lot more helpful than leaving utterly useless "I didn't find what I wanted" comments, what do you expect me to do anyway, dream up what was it you didn't find? 99% of the times people are mixing up knife brand names with steel names, I can clear that much up if anything else.

P.S. S30V real name is CPM S30V. All Crucible CPM steels used in knives are in the database, now including their aliases.

Wow I don't typically write reviews, but this app is wonderful. The app has compositions and traits of a LARGE number of steels. Extremely useful for any knife buyer/blacksmith (I am both and I love it)

Excellent Ever wonder why some blades darken with acid more than others? Compare compositions easily with the graphing function.
