Aus 8A Steel I happen to like that Steel.
Pretty much good stuff in my opinion.
Its not too bad....but it is about the lowest grade that should be used for a general use knife.
Just about everything else used by the main companies is better.
That said, I have had one or two AUS8 knives.
OK for casual use.
If you want to win an argument, it is best to stick to the truth.....or,at least, provable untruths.
