Very high-end steel extremely popular with forgers. It is essentially a simple spring steel with chromium added for hardenability. It has good edge holding, but is known especially for its outstanding durability (like L-6). Often used for swords (hardened in the low 50s Rc) because of its toughness, and for hard use knives (hardened up near the 60s Rc).
