A classic forging steel thought to be almost non-existent, now available through NJ Steel Baron, LLC. Since 1084 is a high carbon steel, it will rust and tarnish if not properly taken care of. Our 1084 comes pickled and annealed, being a eutectoid steel it is simple to heat treat and highly recommended for beginning makers and seasoned smiths alike. Also widely used in damascus steel production.
