obtaining 60 Cr4 steel in norway

I am trying to get hold of 60 Cr4 steel in norway, but so far none of
the supplyers i contacted can deliver it.
Maybe it is known under a different "name" ?
And btw. what does the 60 number in front of Cr4 mean?

You should make yorself familiar with european standards for steel. A textbook should be sufficient.

The steel you are referring to is to AISI 5160. In the UK it is to BS 970-2 1988 grade 525A58 or 525A60. I can try and find a supply from the UK if you like.
