- 8CR13MoV is comparable to AUS-8 steel. It holds a decent edge and is easy to sharper. I don't think it is as durable as some of the better steels, hence the price difference. As for how much force it would take to snap it, it depends on what you are doing with it. You can easily break the tip of any knife (no matter what steel) if you use it as a pry bar.
