From the Spyderco website regarding PSF27 steel : The Bradley Bowie's blade is precision ground from PSF27 - an incredibly tough spray-formed tool steel. Like the particle metallurgy process, spray forming rapidly solidifies molten steel into small particles so its component alloys cannot "segregate" or settle. This creates an ultra,fine, extremely homogenous grain structure that is ideal for knife blades. PSF27's alloy composition includes molybdenum, vanadium and a generous 1.55% carbon, but because its chromium content is 12% - just below the official threshold for stainless steel - care should be taken to maintain it properly.
