Vascowear(Vasco Metal) - Air hardening, tool steel. Wear resistance is higher than AISI D2 tool steel, and toughness is higher compared to AISI M2 high speed tool steel. Overall, great combination of wear resistance and toughness. Crucible tool selector on their website doesn't specifically state that CruWear is made using CPM process, and to add to the confusion, there are references to CPM CruWear. I do not know if in the past CruWear was made as an ingot steel, but as of now, circa 2014, according to the Crucible sales rep, CruWear is made only as a CPM steel. See also Knife Steel FAQ.
