Does anyone know?

Mine was a BHR and done in Nov 2000 --- I was told it consisted of carbon/cobalt /chrome but no percentages declared , also have the video of various materials and failures over the years till finally using this mix . Excellent -- full black and decker job if you don't mind real flesh and blood , well it convinced me to have it done !
