CPM-3V IS A TOUGH STEEL
While Bradford Knives also offers models in M390 steel, I chose to go with its CPM-3V model for this review. It isn’t truly a stainless steel, but it does very well with corrosion resistance. It is most known, though, for its toughness and wear-resistance. It offers exceptionally high impact resistance, even greater than A2 or D2. This is a steel that’s made for abuse, which makes it a great choice for outdoor knives.
