Alloys and metals

I'm looking for an alloyed metal that is comparable in hardness to steel (if not harder). I know very little about metals and alloys, and the stuff I found on google were way over my head. If there was a current alloy what would it be and what would it be called? Can anything be added to Brass excepting Iron and have it be strong as steel?

Please do not respond with Titanium or Bronze (unless it is a bronze alloy) as i have different uses in mind for these.

Also anything created by laboratory means such as depleted Uranium would not be appropriate. While I can involve a little magic or bending a little of reality, I want to avoid thouroughly modern Alloys unless they could have been made in a medeival forge (potentially).

Sorry if that's confusing... Dealing mostly in theory here anyway.
