    Do any knife carriers around OT know any differences between both of these metals? The only difference I know of is that 154CM has been around since the sixties and S60R is relatively new.

    Who uses it in their knives? I think Microtech uses something S60

    You will have to find a chart which shows the metal breakdown for each type of steel. S30V is pretty popular now and is better then 154cm. I imagine S60 probably has a higher carbon content but I can't verify without looking it up. Just google it and you will find your answer.

    Thanks for the info. Time to look for either a Spyderco that uses said metal.

    Any recommendations?
