A steel frequently used for larger blades and swords, but used just as regularly in everything from bowies to kitchen knives, 1075 is tough, durable, and hypo-eutectic, which means it is very forgiving during heat treatment across a wide range of quenching fluids employed by the knife community–a very convenient option when one does not have access to some heat treat equipment and materials that benefit hyper-eutectoid steels like 1095 or W2.

Our 1075 comes pickled, annealed, and slightly oversized for convenient forging although we also carry it in thicknesses some stock removal customers find more convenient. Aside from its durability and toughness along, it has become an excellent steel choice for mixing with 1045 or 15n20 for damascus production.

Our current batch has had some minor adjustments to the chemistry and resulted in knives differentially hardened that produce some very exquisite hamons that many had not thought possible with hypo-eutectoid steel.

Whether you want to make a simple hunter or an elaborate full two-handed broadsword, we are sure you won’t be disappointed with NJSB 1075.
