Hardening: 840 ° / annealing at 160 ° C for 2x1 hour yields approximately 62-64 HRC 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.
This ball bearing steel has a amazing long-lasting sharpness and high cutting performance
