I was checking out butch harner line and notice that one of his knives is made with Carpenter xhp steel. Any body got any info on this steel? How compares to other stuff?

As per Carpenter, CTS-XHP is an air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy which can be described as either a high hardness Type 440C stainless steel or a corrosion resistant D2 tool steel. Possesses corrosion resistance equivalent to Type 440C stainless but can attain a maximum hardness of 64 HRC, approaching that of D2 tool steel.
