Chevron CopperMai with 80CrV2 core
By Bakers Forge and Tools, Mountain City, Tennessee, USA
Coy Baker and his team are creating some truly stunning specialty steels, we are super excited to offer these in Australia!
This billet layout uses a triple alloy Coppermascus cladding on a mono core of 80CrV2 carbon steel. During the forging process, a chevron pattern is incorporated into the billet for a truly unique look!
- Chevron Coppermascus cladding with 80crv2 core
- Forged finish
- Fully Annealed
*Melting Point of Copper is 1050c
Keep Below 1000c while forging
Heat treating 80CrV2:
- heat to 845 C (1550 F)
- hold for 10 mins for "knife blade thickness"
- Quench in a warm (30-50C) fast quench oil (not Canola)
- Temper immediately at 204 C (400 F) for 2 hours, cool in water and temper for another 2 hours
- For approx 60 HRC
NOTICE: This is not a steel for beginners. There are no refunds for messing up these by forging them or heat treating them. This is a risky product for higher level makers who accept the risks involved in a product that consisting of high carbon steel, nickel and copper... be warned.
Pro Tip: Don't grind these before heat treat. Flatten, profile but don't grind bevel. As the cheeks are not hardenable, there is no advantage to grinding profiles before heat treat. This only increases the chances of warping or issues during the heat treatment.
