Coy Baker and his team are creating some truly stunning specialty steels, we are super excited to offer these in Australia:

Specs:

- Flat Ground

- All bar edges are ground back to clean steel 

- Billets come fully annealed 

- These are for stock removal, not to be forged due to chance of delamination between layers.

-Heat treat like 80CrV2 (details below)

** This is an advanced, expensive steel with san mai construction. This is not a beginner-steel. There are no refunds for messing up the heat treatment and splitting them, or forging and delaminating the billets ***

Heat treating Baker Forge steel with 80CrV2 core:

  • Normalize at 1600F (871 C) , 1500F (815 C), and 1400F (760 C) letting cool to black between each cycle.

  • Heat to 1550 F (843 C)

  • Hold for approx 10 mins for "knife blade thickness"

  • Quench in warm quench oil (not Canola) 86 F-122F (30- 50 C)

  • Temper immediately for 2 hours, cool in water and temper for another 2 hours (We recommend 392 F, 200 C)
