In the 90s we also used "Carbon V"for Cold Steel knives, but called it 0170-6C when we used it for Camillus & Becker knives.

I am not aware of any variations in the recipe for 1095 Steel. If you mess with the percentages of the ingredients then it becomes something else rather than 1095. The recipe is pretty standardized so fast as I am aware.
I think what Wade may have been remembering was a discussion about Schrade+ Steel where it is suspected, that they added a little bit of something to the recipe for 440C and called it Schrade+.
