    which steels pair well for damascus?

    Caleb, the W-2 and 15T of 1084 will be delivered to the Connecticut warehouse a few days after the 14th of March. We need to pull it and get it all cut. It's looking like the last week in March is a safe bet. Al!, as for thicker 15N20 the mill can roll it as thick as 3/8". I've always though that it would be an excellent sword and large knife steel. We have it to 1/8 and I was considering 1/4". What do you all think?

    Forged file falling apart!

    Jan, The steel described below is AISI/ASSTM W112, JIS SK2, DIN C 125 W, Werkstoff #1.1563. Budderus Mills is one of the producers of this steel. The mang. in the formula you put down is a hair high as the formula calls for .10 to .35. The carbon range is 1.20 to 1.35 and the Si and chrome fall right in place. It's one of the higher carbon W-1's. On the low end of the spectrum is C70W1. The same formula with .65 to .74 carbon. I'm thinking that C70W1 with .15 to .20 Vanadium would be an excellent Sword Steel.(In my humble opinion) Scott, I would love to have what's left of that file tested. Send me a piece if there is anything left. Nicholson File 1.23%C .37%Mn .21%Si .16%Cr .09%Ni .04%Mo
