What is the typical AISI number of steel you use Mr. Harsey?
Maytime,
I have just reviewed my material data sheets for the steels I use here and cannot find any AISI designation and to the best of memory, I've never seen one for either the 154CM I've used so much of in the past or the CPM S-30V we use now.
Both steels are made by Crucible Materials Corporation in Syracuse New York.
