This CPM S35VN stainless steel data sheet highlights the edge retention and toughness of this knife steel. CPM S35VN is a tougher version of the popular CPM S30V, due to the addition of niobium. With the addition of .5% niobium, niobium carbides are formed, making CPM S35VN tougher and better able to hold an edge. Machinability and polishibility are also improved.
