Product Description

A favorite steel for many knifemakers, 1095 is excellent for forging, yet proves a little more difficult to heat treat for some makers as it is hyper-eutectoid. Once you have mastered heat treating 1095, excellent effects and hamons can be created. While it may seem a little pricey, our 1095 is the best around. it comes pickled, annealed, and we suggest a fast-oil quench.

    (verified owner):

    This is a great steel. I have ordered 4in x 48in 3 times at this point of their 1095. It comes in proper dimensions and is not all rusted or bent up. They ship the steel with a pieceof underlying lumber to keep the product straigjt. As a novice knife maker I have had no issue heat treating this steel and feedback from my sales have all been great. Recommended to many peers and friends.
