S30V is considered a premium grade knife steel. It is so expensive that it strongly affects the price of the knife, and is largely used in higher-end production and custom knives. Buck Knives calls it "the absolute best blade steel available".
An absolutely stunning knife, couldn't be happier. Looks and functions great. Natural man went the extra mile and sent me some pics of the actual knife in stock so that I could check out the gorgeous wood handles. Cheers.
