10520 alloy steel

It appears to be a version of A-36, mild steel in other words. Not a good knife steel. The 10520 is a milspec number, it's also called 1117 or 11L17, it's about .2 C.

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.
