1095(AISI) - Simple, though popular carbon blade steel, very popular with knife-makers as it is easily worked. Sort of the de-facto standard carbon steel that will rust easily. Typical hardness is in the 58-60HRC range. Several makers take it all the way up to 64-65HRC.
Sandvik makes a very pure equivalent of this steel under the Sandvik 20C Shock Absorber name. One of the main downsides is relatively low abrasive wear resistance as there isn't much in this alloy to form carbides.

Manufacturing Technology - Ingot
