1095 Steel barstock for forging and Knife Making 3/16" x 1-1/2" x 12"

 Ean: 0619587996400   |    PartNumber: STEEL31611212   |   Asin: B075QYMYDR

1095 forging steel is an ideal steel for knife making as well as many other metal smith type hobbies. 195 steel is a high carbon steel that is very easy to shape through a process called forging. This steel lacks some of the manganese of other steels and as such has a lower harden-ability. The added carbon creates a carbon rich martensite with plenty of free carbon for good abrasion resistance. This steel required more care in the heat treatment process. Also, avoid lamellar annealing and overheating with this steel. Recommended working sequence for 1095: Forging: Heat to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit / 1150 Celsius. Do not forge below 1500 degrees Fahrenheit / 815 degrees Celsius. Normalizing - Heat to 1575 Celsius & then cool in still air. Annealing - heat to 1475 degrees Fahrenheit & furnace cool to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit at a rate not exceeding 50 degrees Fahrenheit per hour. Grinding Or Machining: Hardening - Austenitize heat to 1475 degrees Fahrenheit.

Features

  • 1095 forging steel is cold rolled & annealed with a bright finish which makes it perfect for forging, blades, tools & other parts.
  • 1095 has a carbon content of .95% which makes makes this a hard steel that will reduce the amount of wear that a blade will experience over time.
  • When used to make knives, 1095 steel holds a great edge and is a very easy steel to sharpen.
  • This steel is perfect for knives that will not be formed and made too thin & is ideal for chopping knives, functional show swords, replica blades as well as daggers.
  • 1095 forging steel is also a very useful metal for making a number of dining tools & is often the metal of choice when making machetes.

W1 Tool Steel Round Rod, Polished Finish, Precision Ground, Precision Tolerance, 1/2" Diameter, 36" Length

Model: 18057   |    Mpn: 18057   |    Ean: 0698158180578   |    PartNumber: 18057   |   Asin: B001HWB1JO

The W1 tool steel round rod has been precision ground and polished, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM A686 and Society of Automotive Engineers SAE J437 specifications, and has a precision tolerance. The W1 tool steel grade has high carbon content for hardness and provides excellent machinability when hardened in water following heat treatment. The polished finish offers a smooth surface with few imperfections. The rod has been ground to achieve the precise shape and size.

Steel is an iron alloy with carbon and other elements that modify the steel to achieve specific properties. In general, steels with higher carbon content have greater strength, hardness, and wear resistance, while those with lower carbon content have more formability, weldability, and toughness. Carbon steels, which include most AISI-SAE grades in the 1000 range, are classified by their level of carbon content as low (below 0.3%), medium (0.3% to 0.6%) and high (0.6% and above). Alloy steels, which include AISI-SAE grades in the 1300 and 4000 ranges and above, incorporate elements such as chromium, molybdenum, and nickel to modify properties like machinability and corrosion resistance. Tool steels, which include most grades with a letter and number grade designation, have high carbide content for wear resistance, high hardness, and the ability to hold a cutting edge. Some tool steels are designed to resist deformation when used in elevated temperatures.

Tensile strength, used to indicate a material s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.

Features

  • W1 tool steel has excellent machinability when hardened in water following heat treatment
  • Meets ASTM A686 and SAE J437 specifications
  • Ground with high precision to the specified shape and size

Steel is an iron alloy with carbon and other elements that modify the steel to achieve specific properties. In general, steels with higher carbon content have greater strength, hardness, and wear resistance, while those with lower carbon content have more formability, weldability, and toughness. Carbon steels, which include most AISI-SAE grades in the 1000 range, are classified by their level of carbon content as low (below 0.3%), medium (0.3% to 0.6%) and high (0.6% and above). Alloy steels, which include AISI-SAE grades in the 1300 and 4000 ranges and above, incorporate elements such as chromium, molybdenum, and nickel to modify properties like machinability and corrosion resistance. Tool steels, which include most grades with a letter and number grade designation, have high carbide content for wear resistance, high hardness, and the ability to hold a cutting edge. Some tool steels are designed to resist deformation when used in elevated temperatures.

Tensile strength, used to indicate a material s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.
