Cutlery steels

Been awhile, still using HSMAdvisor daily, everything just generally works awesome these days :)

I had a question on cutlery steels. I'm going to be doing a bit of milling in some of the fancy grades, and I figure for now I can just approximate with similar tool steels. They're not quite the same though... would it be possible to get some of the more popular ones added? s30v, etc?

A lot of the common ones are just tool steels.. They're really pretty easy, and using d2 for my s30v seemed to get me in the ballpark.

Some of the common designer ones.. CPM-154, s30v, s35vn, s90v.. "ElMAX' .. I'm sure getting info on these may be like pulling teeth.
