Stainless Steel Damascus billet in ROSE pattern
Damascus or forge-welded steel billet from 2 stainless steels; 9Cr18Mov and 10Cr15CoMoV.
These are approx 58-60 HRC, fully hardened and tempered already.
Roughly 110 layers of stainless damascus - see Options for size and price.
Note: These need to be kept cool while working to not ruin the temper, like all other pre-heat treatment grinding.
These are difficult to drill, being hardened.
Being stainless steel, these can be difficult to etch and you may need to experiment before finding a good process.
Try Ferric Chloride, if this does not work try something more agressive like warm hydrochloric acid.
No heat treatment advice is provided as they are hardened already.
As for all stainless blade steel it is recommended not to heat treat more than once, and not to forge these.
