Narex chisels = chrome manganese *LINK*

Hi Kees, Bill, and all,

Here is Narex' writeup on their chisel steel:

http://www.narexchisels.com/Narex_Chisels/Narex_Cr-Mn_Steel.html

It's low-alloy, high carbon and isothermally tempered, which they explain in great detail in the link.

I couldn't find a standard AISI chrome-moly steel with C content higher than 0.6%.
