Although mistaken to be the new kid on the block, 80CrV2 has actually been around for ages under the common nickname “Swedish saw steel.”

A high carbon chrome-vanadium, 80CrV2 is a tough as nails workhorse steel.

It provides the essential qualities of a 1080-series steel, with all the perks of a high chrome steel like 5160.

We’ve brought it on board for its ability to be readily forged and ground alike, and like 5160, only need a very simple heat treat similar to 5160 that will meet all the expectations of seasoned pros and be more forgiving to makers just beginning.

It’s for these reasons that many makers whose careers were built on 5160 have joined us and made 80CrV2 their go-to steel for everything they make.

If you have a task you think would fit 5160, give 80CrV2 a try–it’s an excellent chrome-based high carbon steel with some additional perks in grain refinement that will leave you grinning every time.

From kitchen knives to tomahawks and swords, to pocket knives and hunters on down to little craft carving blades, 80CrV2 is a champ in the making, no matter the project.
