Does anyone here have any experience with H1 steel?

From what I hear on the net it sounds it sounds nearly perfect for some designs.
It's rust proof. Now most stainless is rust-resistant, for example my 440C blade would probably get blotchy if I left it in salt water for too long, but from what I've heard you pretty much need to soak it in bleach and battery acid to rust H1.

It doesn't heat-treat as well as the 440 line, BUT!
Apparently if you stress the blade edge correctly you can get it to work harden to the point of most carbon steels(!!).

So, theoretically, I could make a bowie knife, axe or sword that's rust proof, has a springy spine and a 65hrc-ish hard edge?
That sounds too good to be true. I hope it's not.

I haven't checked the price per lb, but with characteristics like that it's worth it.


Edit @ jake tb:That's a really good looking grip you have on that big knife. Your grind lines look a little wavey, don't know if it was intentional or not. You really need to be picky about the quality of your sanding belts if you want laser-precise lines.
The 4x36 belts I was getting from harbor freight really sucked. The lines on my hunter would have been terrible if I tried to finish it with them, and actual blade edge would have been more rounded and harder to sharpen. For practice knives they work fine though.

hmm i dont exactly now what your meaning... every one else but the birch handled one is been hand sharpen for many many times, the last picture shows a knife that has been sharpen so much that it has a secondary edge :D i dont have any wondows on my workshop so the light can be little pain


fbord: yes you could make a knife like that, just the 65hrc edge is so hard that it could chip and crack very easyly

hi!

This is a new knife that iv finished few hours ago. Its hand forged from Wr 1.2210 (1.2C, 0.7Cr, 0.1V) and its hardened to about 58hrc. This one is going to my buddy, and all it needs is a shief.

That's a very nice knife!


I just bought myself the Kershaw Black Blur.

It's an assisted opening linerlock, with a blade made out of 14c28n steel.
I like the looks, and it has a very nice grippy inlay.

Because pink is badass.

Actually there is a lengthy explanation as to why, but I don't believe it's appropriate to say on this forum. :lol:

No, it shows you're so tough that you don't care that people think you're a pussy.

That's why pink is badass.

Plus it's harder to lose if it's that colour.

That's a good PC way of summing it up. :twisted:
