So far I've been messing with 80CRV2, and I'm liking what I'm seeing so far.  I'm still refining my heat treat, but so far it's taken the place of straight 1084 for smaller stock removal and some forged knives.  Don't think it'll take the place of 52100, but a good alternative to 1084 or 1095 and so far outperforms the simple steels by a good margin.

So far my basic heat treat is to heat to 1525 and quench in 130-140 deg. fast quench, about 8 second oil.  Temper 2 times at 400 deg. for 2 hours each.  Comes out rite at 60 RC and is very tough.  I haven't had time or resources to do any more experiments, but has anyone tried triple quenching it in a slow oil?

I've looked all over the place and found very little heat treat info on it.
