N690Co is made by Bohler in Austria. It is stainless, has excellent edge-holding capabilities and takes extremely fine edge. The high carbon content allows the steel to be tempered to 58-60HRc while the Cobalt inhibits cracking (chipping) at this level of hardness. The vanadium contributes to edge-holdind by producing a fine grain structure. Bohler’s unique cross-rolling technology produces a homogeneous steel sheet with excellent carbide distribution.
