High carbon cobalt stainless steel 9Cr13CoMoV
AUS-6, AUS-8, AUS-10: Sometimes referred to as 6A, 8A and 10A stainless steel.
AUS-6 is roughly comparable to 440A, and competes with 420J.
AUS-8 is roughly comparable to 440B and competes with ATS-55 and Gin-1.
AUS-10 is roughly comparable to 440C, but slightly tougher and slightly less corrosion resistant.
It competes with ATS-34 and 154CM.
The AUS series stainless steel contains vanadium, unlike the 440 series, which increases its wear resistance and edge retention. The vanadium allows a sharper edge to be put on the blade.
A Chinese made high-carbon stainless steel with increased levels of cobalt added for greater edge retention.
Offers a higher level of corrosion resistance at a great value. It's equivalent to AICHI AUS10.
* aka 9Cr13MoVCo ; 9Cr13, 913 in short.
