CPM-154-CM is a CPM processed version of 154-CM providing a more even distribution of carbides, which greatly enhances attributes of already popular precursor, 154-CM.
CPM-154-CM is easy to grind and polish like its predecessor, as well as having improved toughness and corrosion resistance. The more even, finely distributed carbide structure relates to finer, thinner edges and greater wear resistance.
Unlike 154-CM, many makers find it can be polished to an even finer degree to near mirror-like perfection.
