its not 01 if you want 01 buy o1 .i went to cromwells last year and got a couple of pieces of that indexa .asked if it was 01 tool steel the kid behind the counter said well its comparable ok is it 01 or not ffs simple .then more silly bollox anyway i made a couple of blades heat treated it fine just struggled to get the finish on it like 012 itll do the job ,but i wont use it .i like the 80crv2 ,but these days i use more stainless steels than carbon steels so just how it is //
