Uddeholm steel is etched with their logo every 2 feet or so, so it is a no-brainer as to what it is. I am not sure but I think that Sanvik is too. As for the "Japanese" steel, I encountered it 15 years ago and it not only flaked but it would split when swaged and you could actually split the plate in two with a screw driver! Needless to say we went back to Uddeholm. My concern now is that there are fewer manufacturers of saws these days and just recently Simonds merged with IKS so now there is even less competetition and as always I would expect prices to go up.
