A stainless tool steel developed at the DAMASTEEL AB firm in Sweden. It is a powder metallurgy version of ATS-34 that was the steel championed by one of the grandfathers of modern custom knife making Bob W Loveless (Hence RWL). It's performance is exemplary, especially in the 27 degree scandi grind that I employ. It is very tough and will hold an edge for a long time. Normally hardened to 62hrc for best performance.
