A36 Steel Rectangular Bar, Unpolished (Mill) Finish, ASTM A36, 1" Thickness, 1-1/2" Width, 48" Length

Model: 81161   |    Mpn: 10616   |    PartNumber: 10616   |   Asin: B000H9NZT2

The A36 carbon steel rectangular bar has been hot rolled, has an unpolished (mill) surface, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM A36 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The A36 carbon steel grade is a structural steel that has better formability than 1018 carbon steel. The bar has been hot rolled, a method of compressing metal between two rollers at a temperature above the material's recrystallization temperature to attain the specified dimensions.

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.

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.

D2 Steel Barstock for Knife Making -- 3/16" x 1-1/2" x 12"

Model: D2004   |    Mpn: D2004   |    PartNumber: D2004   |   Asin: B01M66SW6A

D2 is considered a "semi-stainless" because it has more carbon and less chromium than most stainless steels. As such, it is difficult to attain a high mirror polish, keeps an edge better than most stainless steels, but also is less susceptible to rusting like 1080 or 1095. Our D2 contains 12% chromium, 1.5% carbon, 1.2% molybdenum, 1% cobalt, 1% vanadium, and less than 1% sulphur, silicon, manganese, and phosphorus. D2 is an air quenching steel.

Features

  • D2 is a "semi-stainless" air quenching steel with higher carbon and less chromium than "traditional" stainless, but keeps an edge better and hardens up to around RC 62.
  • Iron alloy contains 12% chromium, 1.5% carbon, 1.2% molybdenum, 1% cobalt, 1% vanadium, and less than 1% sulphur, silicon, manganese, and phosphorus.
  • Dimensions are 5/32 x 1-1/2 x 12. This steel is annealed.
  • It's superior hardening and decent rust resistance makes D2 a good steel to make into tools.

D2 Steel Barstock for Knife Making -- 1/8" x 1-1/2" x 12"

Model: D2002   |    Mpn: D2002   |    PartNumber: D2002   |   Asin: B01MCWE9GC

D2 is considered a "semi-stainless" because it has more carbon and less chromium than most stainless steels. As such, it is difficult to attain a high mirror polish, keeps an edge better than most stainless steels, but also is less susceptible to rusting like 1080 or 1095. Our D2 contains 12% chromium, 1.5% carbon, 1.2% molybdenum, 1% cobalt, 1% vanadium, and less than 1% sulphur, silicon, manganese, and phosphorus. D2 is an air quenching steel.

Features

  • D2 is a "semi-stainless" air quenching steel with higher carbon and less chromium than "traditional" stainless, but keeps an edge better and hardens up to around RC 62.
  • Iron alloy contains 12% chromium, 1.5% carbon, 1.2% molybdenum, 1% cobalt, 1% vanadium, and less than 1% sulphur, silicon, manganese, and phosphorus.
  • Dimensions are 1/8 x 1-1/2 x 12. This steel is annealed.
  • It's superior hardening and decent rust resistance makes D2 a good steel to make into tools.

Features

  • 1095 is a moderately high carbon content forging steel used for making knives. This oil quenching steel is in the annealed state.
  • Iron alloy contains 1.0% carbon, 0.90% manganese, 0.05% sulphur, and 0.04% phosphorus.
  • Dimensions are 3/16 x 1-1/2 x 12.
  • Layer 1095 with 15N20 to forge Damascus, and etch with Ferric Chloride to bring out the contrast.
  • Higher carbon steels like 1095 will keep an edge much better than stainless steels, but are also more susceptible to rust without proper care. (We mark our 1095 with blue and orange to distinguish it from other steels we sell)

1018 Carbon Steel Rectangular Bar, Unpolished (Mill) Finish, 3" Thickness, 3/4" Width, 36" Length

Model: 1018.75X3.000FLTL3.000   |    Mpn: 1018.75X3.000FLTL3.000   |    PartNumber: 1018.75X3.000FLTL3.000   |   Asin: B003ZHUSES

The 1018 carbon steel rectangular bar has an unpolished (mill) surface and a standard tolerance. The 1018 carbon steel grade has low carbon content for a balance of strength, machinability, formability, and weldability. This material can be heat treated for higher hardness.

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.

1018 Carbon Steel Rectangular Bar, Unpolished (Mill) Finish, Cold Rolled, ASTM 108, 1/8" Thickness, 1/4" Width, 96" Length

Model: 56558   |    Mpn: 4801   |    PartNumber: 4801   |   Asin: B000H9JX1Q

The 1018 carbon steel rectangular bar has been cold rolled, has an unpolished (mill) surface, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM A108 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The 1018 carbon steel grade has low carbon content for a balance of strength, machinability, formability, and weldability. This material can be heat treated for higher hardness. The bar has been cold rolled, a method of compressing metal between two rollers below the material's recrystallization temperature to achieve the specified dimensions.
