Steels and Target Hardness

Hardness values listed are what I typically aim for during heat treat. Values are measured on my calibrated Rockwell tester. I take at least 3 tests and average the results. Variance of the tests is +/- .5 HRC.

Standard Steels:

A2: 62 HRC


CPM-3V: 63 HRC

Magnacut: 63 HRC


Specialty Steels: These steels below I have worked with before and are available upon request. Other steels may also be requested but these are ones I've worked with. 

CPM-154: 62 HRC

4V: 64 HRC

10V: 65 HRC

CPM Cru-Wear: 63 HRC
