Hi guys!

I'm looking for steel to make damascus. Found local supplier selling L6, but a bit different composition than usual.

This is what they give:

5XНВ / 55NiCrMoV7 / 1.2714 / L6

C 0.5-0.6

Mn 0.5-0.8

Mo 1.8-2.1

Cr 1-1.3

Ni 1.4-1.8


Carbon content is lower, wonder if it is still good enough for blades. What do you think?


Would combine it with 90MnV8 / 1.2842 /O2

C 0.85-0.95

Mn 1.8-2.1

V 0.1-0.25


Thank you!
