1084 Carbon Steel Information & Composition

1080 info
1080, 1084, 52100, CruForgeV and W2 are shown in the table above for comparison purposes.

1018:
This steel is available at Lowes, Home Depot and other home improvement stores. It is good for projects requiring low carbon steel.It is NOT a good blade steel. It should never be used as a blade steel or as a component in damascus. The only reason it is used is because it is cheap. Do not buy damascus that contains 1018.

1050:
A tough medium carbon steel. It is a good steel to use when making a sword because of its toughness.

1075:
A tough high carbon steel. 1075 is suitable for forging or stock removal and is especially good for large knives due to its toughness when heat treated and tempered properly. It can be differentially heat treated and etched to show a hamon line.

1095:
This is another simple carbon steel. Heat treating can be problematic. The time/temperature curve is very short. If heat treated correctly this steel makes good knives. I do not recommend this steel for beginning knifemakers because of the potential problems when heat treating.
