Blade Steel 1.5634 (AISI L6) 75Ni8
Material size is 2 x 40 x 1000 mm.
Flexible and tough spring steel for sharp knifes or used as silver layers in damascus steel. Very flexible and therefore perfect for filleting knife and thin blades.
Content: C:0,75% / NI:2,0%
Very flexible and therefore perfect for filleting knife and thin blades.
Color if used in damascus steel: silver.
Hardness approximately 60 HRC.
The material is pre-hardened to about 45HRC, but can be processed with good tools.
Perfect for making damascus steel together with 1.2842 + 1.2235 for tough and razor-sharp blades.
Recommended for sharpness level B.
Hardening: 820 ° / annealing at 180 ° C for 1 hour = approx 60 HRC. For high flexibility tempering at 200 ° C = approx 58 HRC.
Tip for damascus steel: If you need thicker layers simply use the steel double or triple. 75Ni8 welded easily with itself!
Important info: The Steel is soft annealed and comes to us in big sheets (about 2x1m). The sheets are cut for us into stripes of 40 to 60mm.
Because of the cutting process the steel may be a little twisted, but it is easy to bend it straight again by using your knee, a vice, or hammer and anvil.
