Item details

1080 steel is a popular metal for making your own knife, because of its excellent edge holding ability and it forges well with 15N20 to make Damascus steel.

This steel is annealed, meaning it is soft enough to grind and shape. It will need to be heat treated and oil quenched before it is hard enough to use reliably as a knife.

Several dimensions are available by the foot:
1/8" x 1-1/4"
1/8" x 1-1/2"
3/16" x 1-1/2"

Steel is sold by the foot, and we can ship single lengths up to three feet. If you want your steel in longer than 1 foot sections, you need to add comments in the check out process, like "Cut steel into 2 foot lengths," etc. If you don't leave any comments, the default will be to cut all steel in 1 foot lengths.

Alloy contains 0.88% carbon, 0.90% manganese, 0.05% sulfur, and 0.04% phosphorus.
