BÖHLER K601 corresponds to the material 1.2746 (45NiCrMoV16 6). The alloy concept of this tool steel is similar to 1.2767. With its high nickel content, this material offers a very good combination of through hardenability and toughness. Additional alloying with vanadium and molybdenum achieves higher resistance to abrasive wear. This material is used where high resistance to impact and shock loads is required and the wear resistance of a 1.2767 material is insufficient. The material is used in applications such as highly stressed industrial knives in the recycling industry.
