CPM S30V is a martensitic stainless steel designed to offer

the best combination of toughness, wear resistance and

corrosion resistance. Its chemistry has been specially

balanced to promote the formation of vanadium carbides

which are harder and more effective than chromium carbides

in providing wear resistance. CPM S30V offers substantial

improvement in toughness over other high hardness

steels such as 440C and D2, and its corrosion resistance

is equal to or better than 440C in various environments.

The CPM process produces very homogeneous, high

quality steel characterized by superior dimensional stability,

grindability, and toughness compared to steels produced

by conventional methods.


Carbon 1.45%

Chromium 14.00%

Vanadium 4.00%

Molybdenum 2.00%

Elastic Modulus 32 X 10 6 psi (221 GPa)

Density 0.27 lbs./in 3 (7.47 g/cm 3 )


S30V, a stainless steel created with the knife market in mind, alloyed to accommodate specific capabilities and manufactured to ensure clean, uniform steel. Unlike traditionally cast and rolled steels, S30V is made using the powder metallurgy process, a process that reduces molten alloy components to minute balls – or powder – which results in every grain comprising the exact composition of alloy elements. The powder is compressed under significant force to a homogenous, solid state and the steel is rolled to required stock size.
